This is a group discussion activity and the questions suggested below are only intended to start it off. There will be many more questions that arise as your discussions develop.

Write or project the following quote on a board –

We are one people forever woven together in a tapestry
Roy Barnes
Former Governor of Georgia

Ask :

  • What do you think this means?
  • What does it make you think of?
  • What is a tapestry?
  • How does the idea of tapestry connect to the programme?

Naz’s Dad is reported as saying “Our world could be a beautiful tapestry, if only we could work out how to weave the strands together”.

  • What do you think is he talking about?
  • Do you agree with him? Or is it an impossible dream?
  • Is there anything we can do as individuals to contribute to the wider picture whilst maintaining our individuality?

Here is another quote that refers to tapestries that may also be a useful stimulus for discussion:

We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone…and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads form one to another that creates something.”
Sandra Day O’ Connor
