Like so many Western Isles residents, An Lanntair stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
As people collectively rise up around the world in protest against racial injustice and violence, we, like many of our fellow islanders, feel compelled to support and to contribute.
We may not be able to travel to protest – but we can make our voices heard.
An Lanntair would like to invite our local community to make and submit to us their own banners in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
We are asking you to help us and together we can speak up and stand for human rights and anti-racism. We want to provide a platform to let all our voices shout from.
You can either send in cloth banners that we will hang on our building, or photographs of your own self-designed banners which we will then reprint and display in our window poster boxes.
Please send your banners to us by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post to: An Lanntair, Kenneth Street, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, HS1 2DS. We will display banners as we receive them, but ask if you could try to send them as soon as you can, up until June 19th.
The Black Lives Matter print above has been created by Lewis artist Alice Macleod. It is available to buy as a physical artwork or as a download from her website – www.alicemacprints.co.uk – with 100% of proceeds from this work being donated to @standuptoracismuk
