Online Presentation via Webinar
Please join us with our guest speaker Shannon Downey, also known as Badass Cross Stitch, who is an artist, activist, craftivist, community builder, and general instigator. She blends her politics, activism, and art into projects that are designed to inspire others to take action, think, discuss, engage with democracy and their community, and find some digital/analog balance. She uses art as a vehicle for positive change through creative interventions whether that be through open-source street art campaigns or global craftivism projects.
She is the instigator behind #RitasQuilt and #MakeDontBreak and @BadassHerstory. She is on a quest to teach one million people to embroider and invite society to rethink how we categorize, and value craft and art. Shannon sold everything she owned and moved into an RV this past June to bring art, activism, and community to the country that she still believes in.
She teaches at Columbia College, DePaul University, Salem College and is founder of Seriously Badass Women.
Her life motto is: Make Art. Smash Systems.
