Flash mobs come and go, but purposeful creativity can change communities. Are you a creative (aspiring or otherwise) who is curious about how you can apply your skills to activist, socially engaged art projects? Whether you paint, sew, sing, build, weld, or rhyme, Leanne Prain, author of The Creative Instigator’s Handbook and co-creator of Yarn Bombing, will show you how to take that big project you’ve been dreaming about and actually make it happen. 

We encourage anyone with a crafty work-in-progress to bring it to this 75-minute interactive experience, hosted by atypical activist Pam Rocker. Let’s highlight knitting, crocheting and quilting circles (the so-called feminine arts) as paths to creative leadership, community building, and social justice. There will be much back and forth with the audience, admiration of everyone's projects, and book signing.

This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Sept. 29 – Oct. 6, 2022. Connect with 60+ of the world’s most generous writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
