About the Event
It is a monthly meeting for female-identified latinx and/or Spanish speakers immigrants, wherein the
course of 2 hours they can disconnect from their daily activities and do embroider quotes, sayings or
proverbs that break with certain patterns of oppression especially generated from our culture.
We will review Hispanic female writers for inspiration, as well as translating self-care and self-advocate
quotes from English resources.
Come for two hours to: - disconnect from your phone, - create around a women-only environment, - looking up phrases, saying or proverbs of our Hispanic heritage, - practice craftivism, - leave the space with your own creation.
Tickets ($25) available at Eventbrite.
