Savunese culture goes to London

This August a group of weavers and musicians from Savu will be in residence at the Horniman Museum, London, as part of a special programme of events to accompany the Woven Blossoms exhibition.

Alongside the textiles is a photographic display showing aspects of life on the island, including artifacts made from the lontar palm, on which the islanders' livelihoods depend.

The textiles were collected for the Museum by Genevieve Duggan, whose
research describes the significance of textiles in Savunese culture and how its production and the islanders' way of life is changing.

The Museum is situated just 5 minutes walk from Forest Hill station, which is 15 minutes by train from London Bridge. The exhibition runs until February 2005 and admission is free.
