About this Event

Badass HERstory is a craftivism (craft+activism) project launched by Shannon Downey aka @badasscrossstitch meant to empower individuals, build community, and reshape narrative. This project provides an opportunity for folks to learn a new skill set with deep female roots (embroidery), to participate as global activists building off of and expanding the momentum of the equality movement, as well as, the incentive to put down their devices and create something meaningful with their hands and hearts.

This PIVOT show will be a revealing of the stories manifested onto fabric by local Portland artists created for the Badass HERstory project. After this show, these pieces will be sent to the Badass HERstory headquarters to be attached to the larger 3-dimensional structures in what will become a massive public art installation.

Additionally, here at this Portland show there will be fabric, thread, and pens provided for you to create and develop your own story during the show.
