Panel on Popular Culture: Craftivism

 

March 9, 2016

Reeve Ballroom, 6:00-9:00pm

Crafts like embroidery, cross-stitch, and quilting have long been associated with women’s work, but not often thought of as a revolutionary approach to fighting for social justice. This interactive event, which will include the opportunity for you to make your own craft activism, will showcase the history of craftivism and DIY activism and how so-called women’s work can transform the way we think about activism.

Co-Sponsored with LGBTQ Resource Center, Women’s Advocacy Council.

Speaker Alison Gates is a professor of Art and Women's Studies at UW Green Bay and co-founders of the Exquisite Uterus project.

Other featured craftivist projects include the AIDS Quilt, the Monument Quilt, and the I'm A Piece Project.
