Craftivism Across Borders

March 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

About: This activity aims to recognise and respect women living near or in battlefields and refugee camps. All attendees will knit/crochet one or more squares which will be joined together to form the ‘blanket of universal security.’ The finished blanket will be gifted to the Centre for Women Studies as a reminder of our need to take collective action and our continued commitment to global peace. By making a square, you commit to doing your bit to promote equality, justice and respect in this world.
