Social Issues Discussion: Craftivism

Historically, craft has been viewed as a feminine practice with limited influence outside the domestic sphere. More recently, crafts are being recognized not only as fine art but also as a subversive and effective form of activism. Join a group of crafty women for a hands on session at The Women’s Centre as we learn how to weave a more feminist future!

This session will be facilitated by Mireille Perron, a visual artist, critical writer and educator. She was born in Montréal, Québec. Perron is the founder of the Laboratory of Feminist Pataphysics (2000), a social experiment that masquerades as works of art/events.

Child minding is available. Please let us know if you’ll be accessing this service in the comments section of your RSVP.
