Hands on Artivism: Embroidery With A Message
Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 98 views
Art has been an integral part of activism since flyers first called people to demos and banner drops made our messages “go big’. Today, getting messages out through art isn’t just a means of communication but a creative way to engage in important conversations and build community. Moreover, it can be a way to find joy in tough times. Come learn a bit about how art can make a difference in our campaigns. We’ll have a hands-on session learning how to make “embroidery with a message”. Supplies will be provided but if you have an embroidery hoop, please bring it.
Date: Friday Oct. 12
Time: 6-9 PM
Location: George Brown College, 200 King St. East. (Quiet Lounge – please watch for signs)
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier free space. Subway tokens available to attendees by request. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific requirements or questions.
