Last summer, an art exhibition called Seeking Routes was held at Swarthmoor Hall. It showed work in which Friends explored Quaker experience and action in building a more sustainable Earth. This book presents a selection from the exhibition and its five themes: ‘Reverence for Nature’; ‘Spiritual and Creative Process’; ‘Climate Emergency’; ‘Simple and Sustainable’; ‘Witness and Activism’. The final section presents some early pieces from ‘Loving Earth’, a community textile project with roots in the exhibition – it is still growing and evolving today.
