2018 / Sewing Rebellion: Mend Our World

Members: 2
Latest Activity: Sep 12, 2018


Together, we will engage Next Library participants and members of the public to activate the workspace of the library by contributing to a Mend this World banner and creating embroidered patches as a local Call to Action. The Sewing Rebellion (SR) is an ongoing movement hosted in cities throughout the US that brings people together, educates on the high cost of fast fashion, and activates spaces through sewing and community projects. SR creates a safe space for all people to come together, share resources, talk about current and local issues, and promote social change. In the interactive session we will address: the library as a safe center for democracy and civic activism; how to develop library-art partnerships to strengthen community and break down barriers to entry; how to create environmentally sustainable programs through social innovation.
