Crafting + activism

Craftivism is a contemporary art project that responds to the resurgent interest in craft as it relates to socially-engaged art practices. Craftivism will involve fourteen projects developed by artists and collectives that work with craft-based traditions and activist practices, and who employ the tactics of craftivism (combining crafting + activism) to question, disrupt or replace the dominant modes of mass culture and consumerism.

Create your event

unCraftivism is a satellite event of Craftivism. unCraftivism is uncurated. Your work will not be judged, or restricted by a theme, nor does it have to be finished. unCraftivism is self-organized. You organize and promote your own event, whether an art piece, a performance, a talk, a workshop, a meal, a song, a party or an undefinable event.

How to create your own event?
