Creativity and Making for Change Series - Blackfoot Craftivism and Culture
Art, craft and design have been valuable mediums for social change throughout history. Creative thinking is transdisciplinary and encourages learning and connection through storytelling. In collaboration with MRU’s Maker Studio this series of conversations will focus on hand-ons and brain-ons activities that bring participants to an understanding of how creativity and making has been, and continues to be used to address some of our biggest challenges in society.
Building on the introduction to Craftivism by the Maker’s studio, we’ll deep dive to explore the relationship between craftivism and culture. First from a Blackfoot perspective with Latasha Calf Robe then looking inward to our own experiences. Participants will be led to discover ways in which crafitivism has been used in their culture.
