‘Power of Place: Earth, Gather, Form’ by Wyrd Flora, YAK Members, and Motanafas Collective is a unique journey that takes you through nature, culture, and the profound connections that tie us to the environment. We invite you to explore, reflect, and celebrate the power of place with us.

Featuring botanical plant sketches, embroidery and photography, along with natural pigment exploration and plant inks, Power of Place: Earth, Gather, Form reflects young peoples’ personal experiences and stories from two very different locations,  St Catherine in Sinai, Egypt, and Colchester, Essex.

Within this space, YAK and Motanafas explore visual storytelling and nature journaling, offering glimpses into personal reflections, cross-cultural experiences, histories, and stories. This cross-cultural exhibition prompts us to ask questions about preserving traditional land knowledge.

The exhibition is co-curated by Lora Aziz, Motanafas Collective, Rehab Eldalil, YAK, Firstsite’s Young Art Kommunity, and programme team staff members.

This exhibition is part of our ongoing work to challenge the traditional roles in the art sector.
