Coat of Hopes

Ground Floor Studio

The Coat of Hopes was made, worn, and walked by hundreds of people over hundreds of miles from Newhaven on the south coast of England to the gates of COP 26, the UN climate summit, in Glasgow last autumn. The coat is made up of patches that illustrate the griefs, remembrances, beliefs and hopes of people along its route and beyond. It is an invitation to feel the love that it holds, and to carry the weight of responsibility we all share to respond to the climate and ecological emergency we face together.
