Threads of Identity is a collection of 35 fabric flags designed by Friends Life Community artists as windows into each artist’s identity. As you peruse this lookbook, imagine each artist meticulously threading their personal story into their flag — choosing symbols, colors, and textures that are important to them. Every flag unapologetically displays the independence and freedom that is found in being one’s true and authentic self.
Threads of Identity is one collection of many through the Friends Life Community’s program Advocacy Through the Arts: Empowering individuals with disabilities to tell their stories. This program allows each Friend to discover their voice, tell their story, and connect with others through a shared experience. We invite you to learn about each artist’s style and allow their work to evoke an emotional connection through art. Thank you for being a part of this process. We encourage you to share these stories with others.
