De Naaikrans

Feministische Handwerk Partij

€ 5.552

'De Naaikrans' (The Sewing Circle) consists of a series of five meetings during which young women as well as supportive men are introduced to the practical skills of handicrafts and repairs. At the same time, the meetings offer an opportunity to discuss feminism. For this project the Feministische Handwerk Partij (Feminist Craft Party) has entered a partnership with Atria, knowledge institute for emancipation and women's history. Together they link up the artisan and artistic aspects of art and crafts with the underexposed history of women and current social issues such as gender equality and the lack of appreciation for care work. In parallel with the public activities, there is also a research project that examines the significance of the banner to represent craft techniques in women's struggle for emancipation, and a new banner will be designed.
