The second Sunday of every month is Family Free Day at MODA. So join us on Sunday, July 8 for E-Craftivism & Lantern Making.

Join us at MODA to design lanterns and masks for Parliament of Owls, Midtown’s lantern parade on Friday, August 3rd. Then, in anticipation of the Raspberry Pi Jam MODA is hosting on July 18, participate in a  collaborative design integrating Raspberry Pi computing and textiles.

While you're at MODA, check out Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism.

About Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism:

Craftivism is a worldwide movement that operates at the intersection of craft and activism. Across the globe, artists and crafters armed with traditional materials like yarn, glue guns, quilt patterns, sewing needles, X-ACTO knives, and other tools are using their hands to protest social and political inequalities and injustices.

The time spent on these works shows the dedication to creating pieces that evoke emotion and promote discussion. By sharing ideas expressed through the work of their hands, these artists and crafters aim to make you think, explore and take note.

MODA’s Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism exhibition will explore this movement. It will also invite all visitors to get involved by making something that makes a difference.

This exhibition is curated by Betsy Greer, author of Craftivism: The Art and Craft of Activism.
