Join MODA on the evening of Saturday, June 2, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm as we toast our new exhibition, Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism, which explores the Craftivist movement.
Craftivism is a worldwide movement that operates at the intersection of craft and activism. Across the globe, artists, designers, 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.
Meet the Curator and Craftivists
