Everyone Matters : Paper Quilt
The theme for this year’s Information Awareness Month; Access Across the Generations reflects the ACT Department of Education and Training’s Strategic Plan Everyone matters.
The Everyone Matters quilt explores the idea that you belong to a growing patchwork of students across generations in the ACT.
No matter what your pattern, you fit in and have access to information for learning and for life.
The paper quilts are visual stories about keeping your records and caring for your personal information.
The quilts are constructed from copies of covered class rolls and their contents from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Creator of the Quilt, the Department of Education & Training's Paull McKee
