The quilt made by gangs

Marvellous work by Katarina Thorsen, an art therapist who worked with rival gangs in Vancouver. They created this quilt together using painting, sketching and hand sewing, and the one rule is that nothing was censored.

She’s selling it to raise funds for Operation Sock Monkey.

Oh how I’d love to buy it.
