ENDS: 14/02/2023
TIME: 10am - 5pm
WHERE: EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum
COST: Free with entry to EPIC

The Department of Foreign Affairs Common Threads project invited textile artists from around the world to contribute unique individual artworks, which were then assembled by the Irish Patchwork Society.

The final artwork is on display at EPIC, The Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin.


Brigid’s legendary cloak is often depicted as a patchwork of colours and materials, reflecting the diversity and inclusivity of Brigid’s values and work. Forty artworks were received in Dublin from a range of locations including Abuja, Budapest, Cairo, Kyiv, and Shanghai, symbolically reflecting the spread of Ireland’s diplomatic network, while illustrating the power of creative expression to form connections.


This exhibition will be on display from  1st – 14th February, and is included with general ticket entry.
