A big thank you to all who braved the cold and made it to the beautiful Rising Sun Arts Centre last night for the Lockdown Quilt Launch party. From epic songs to wild allotment dancing, from yoga-fails to laughing/crying poetry, the building was alive once more. Big shoutout to local photographer Sapna Odlin and her lockdown "doortraits" and to Liam O'Brien for his wizardry with projections.
