FEMIKNITS–SEW, YOU WANNA WEAVE A REVOLUTION?

March 6 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

How do textiles stitch together fabric, survival, and rebellion? How do we represent our ideas, identities, or secret messages with the fabric of our lives? This presentation will weave together examples of feminist textiles protests known as ‘craftivism’ (craft + activism) from around the globe with Richey’s experiences as an ‘artivist’ (artist + activist). Q&A discussion after the presentation; artwork on display; knitting / crocheting during the talk is encouraged!
