At the Winter Craft Social, join HCCC to explore “craftivism,” inspired by OTRO MUNDO ES POSIBLE (2017), a protest banner on view in HCCC’s Case Study space and part of Aram Han Sifuentes’ Protest Banner Lending Library. Craftivism provides an avenue through which artists can channel their creative energy, share their voices and experiences, and make the world a better place.  At Craft Social, meet Verónica Hernandez, a Protest Banner Lending Library collaborator, and learn how the library creates safe spaces in which communities can work together to address their concerns about current socio-political issues. Take action, and make your own protest sign using a variety of provided materials to create a statement that speaks to your own quest or social cause. Participants will also work together as a group to create a protest banner, based on a local Houston issue, that will be donated to the Protest Banner Lending Library.

Participants in the previous evening’s Protest Banner Workshop will also display their finished banners at this event.
