2021 Art Meets Activism Grant | (Richmond): $9,810 to lead The School of Needlework for Disobedient Women’s two-week workshop for teen girls to learn to express themselves through a craft with a rich feminist history. TSNDW is designed to plant seeds of disruption and examine participants’ place in the fabric of their community by connecting the past and the present, the radical and the beautiful.
2020 Art Meets Activism Grant | (Berea): $3,678 to provide women a 4-day, beginner-level workshop that will produce completed decorative embroidered pieces that empower their creator. To speak their minds through embroidery is a proclamation that they care not if they are judged or challenged, a stride in confidence and empowerment many women don’t see until later in life.
