An informal 30 minute presentation and discussion
‘Our Linen Stories’ Curator John Ennis is originally from Lisburn and has been resident in Edinburgh since 1985. Stepping aside from a career in medicine in 2013 to pursue a passion for design, this is John’s first exhibition tour and in these informal talks, he reflects on his experiences producing the exhibitions and events that have formed Our Linen Stories to date.
John noted, ‘In a small way, exhibitions can serve to highlight the big issues of the day and I hope that Our Linen Stories manages to do that with a look at the positives of migration and creative industry and how we can walk more lightly on the earth with better use of our finite resources. For many, perhaps our biggest problem is the scourge of isolation despite apparently better connectivity: if exhibitions are about anything, they are about bringing people together with a shared interest; its feels fitting to acknowledge the joy of fellowship in a venue such as The Cathedral in Lisburn.’
