"Craftism" is a tool for social change that uses creativity, mindfulness and love to create a more conscious and just world. Join MPS Art Therapy in the power of collective crafting. Materials provided. Facilitated by Ayde Rayas (MPS 2004 Art Therapy), ATR-BC, LCAT. Please RSVP to [email protected] or 212.592.2610.
The objective for this workshop is primarily to give people a voice and a space for reflection. Craftivism can raise awareness of current political issues. Through gathering around the theme of crafting and activism people can share stories and connect through planning collaborative artistic actions. The unhurried process of embroidery and the use of colored pencils gives the participants an opportunity to meditate on their words and images with intention and mindfulness. The act of making and wearing political buttons is a way to share ones message with others.
