- The objective for the Collective Craftivism
Workshop is primarily to give people a voice and a space for reflection. Craftivism can raise awareness of current political issues.
- Through gathering around the theme of crafting and activism people can share stories and connect through planning collaborative artistic actions.
- The unhurried process of embroidery and the use of colored pencils gives the participants an opportunity to meditate on their words and images with intention and mindfulness. The act of making and wearing political buttons is a way to share ones message with others.
