Craftivism Workshops: Find your Radical Voice

CRAFTIVISM WORKSHOPS: Find your radical voice!
Make loud and proud crafts from the activist's toolkit

Age range: 12-15 years

Thursday arvos in June from 4-6pm

Thursday 2nd June – Thursday 30th June

Location: St Albans Community Centre, Programs Room (Level 1)

Lots of people think Craft is less important than Art. It’s been dismissed as a hobby or something handmade by your grandma. But craft has always been a key part of the activist’s toolkit – now more than ever. Through craft, we have the power to create something entirely new with our own hands. To start a conversation and tackle social, political and environmental issues.

Over the course of 5 weeks, this program will explore forms of craft that have always been connected with activist movements: posters, banners, badges, storytelling and zines. We will create loud and proud craftworks that speak up about issues (big and small) that are impacting young people in our community.

At the end of the workshop series, we will launch an exhibition of our work at St Albans Community Centre, designed and curated by the young workshop participants. The exhibition will open at 6pm on 1 July 2022.

Techno-Oracle Training with Mohamed Chamas

8th June – 13th July

Wednesdays 6:30pm - 9pm

St Albans Community Centre, Arts and Culture Program Room (Level 1)

Techno-Oracle Training is a series of workshops that aims to reconsider the way we think about and create digital art and media. In this workshop you'll learn how to create your own 3D virtual 'talisman' - an object of great importance to you. We'll cover 3D modelling and texturing, with the opportunity to add another aspect to your virtual object if you wish (e.g. sound effect, animation, special effect - you choose!) Each week we'll explore a topic in relation to technology and the digital, especially where more magical leanings are concerned. At the end of the workshops, there is an opportunity to perform with your object in Virtual Reality, and share a few words about it. This could be in the form of a poem, prose or simple description.

Those who are misrepresented, delegitimized and or under-served by digital technologies and media TO THE FRONT! (PoC/gender-diverse/queer/disabled). Poets, writers and artists new to 3D are encouraged to come along. The "oracle" part of these workshops is determined by you! This could be taken as faithful, spiritual, mystical, religious and/or symbolic. All that’s really necessary is an interest in art, technology or mysticism.

Produced by Arts Gen by Co-Health and supported by Creative Brimbank.
