World Tour Exhibition

$6,823 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 29 months
My name is Line Dufour and I am a textile artist. In 2013, I received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council to launch the international tapestry installation through social media, Fate, Destiny and Self Determination/Le Sort, Le Destin et L’Auto-Determination, with  661 submissions to date, co-created  by 397 people from 35 countries. The installation continues to grow and I receive new submissions daily. Each time the installation is exhibited, all the names of the co-creators are exhibited, and put on my website at this link: Any extra money raised for this campaign will go towards publishing a book, and creating a film of the journey of this project. 

The installation has already been exhibited in Toronto, Montreal,  St. Andre Avelin, Vancouver, in Canada. It has also been exhibited Denver Colorado at Regis University, at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in California USA as part of the American Tapestry Alliance Biennial 11;  'From Lausanne to Beijing Biennial 2016' Shenzhen, China; World Textile Art 2017 in Uruguay . Monies collected so far have contributed to these expenses, though not all. 

Upcoming exhibitions are scheduled in Ireland for May  and two museums in Germany from June to October all in 2018. More details at this link:

Donations pay for  the expenses of shipping, insurance, exhibition display expenses, transportation, and set up. Each submission that is sent is documented on Facebook On Instagram @tapestryline and on Twitter @tapestry_line. 

I am not just asking for this money for me. I am asking on behalf of the almost 400 textile artists and enthusiasts who have contributed to this project. Help honour all these talented artists who have contributed to making this art installation the dynamic and successful textile installation it is! Without them, it would not have been possible.

The Fate, Destiny and Self Determination installation has been invited to Uruguay as part of the World Textile Art 2017 events taking place in October. Your donation would help to cover some of the exhibition expenses. Most of the money raised so far has paid for the last six exhibitions, including one in China. More funds are required for the next leg of its journey. In 2018 exhibitions are planned in Ireland and Germany. Your support makes it possible to continue to accept exhibition invitations all over the world.

Fate, Destiny and Self Determination has 4 exhibitions coming up for 2017. All shapes and names of contributors are posted on the Facebook page for the project regardless of financial contributions. However, if you would like your name to be included on the gallery label as being co-creators for these exhibitions, please send a donation to cover the expenses of creating the giant label for the names, shipping, insurance, photography and costs of installation. Recommended: $10 for each exhibition. Those who have already contributed will not be excluded from the label but if they feel inclined, additional donations will be welcome. Thank you for making this an exciting journey, and it is your participation that makes the installation so dynamic! all the best, Line Dufour

Fate, Destiny and Self Determination has now raised $3403. to tour this exhibit worldwide. At least half of the money raised is from people who were not involved nor contributed to the project. What immense generosity, faith, and encouragement from these supporters!

It is a great honour that these people have entrusted me with their donations to help Fate, Destiny and Self Determination tour the world, like a great Noah's arc of textiles. I am equally moved that many donors are people who have not co-created the installation....It all feels quite miraculous!

Happy to have been part of this exciting concept since the first call for pieces — the two venues where I’ve seen it were different and wonderful.
