About the event

 Kavvya Sharma brings "Craftivism" to the Hive, it is a form of activism, typically incorporating elements of anti-capitalism, environmentalism, solidarity, or third-wave feminism, that is centered on practices of craft - or what has traditionally be referred to as "domestic arts". Craftivism includes, but is not limited to, various forms of needlework

including yarn-bombing or cross-stitch. Craftivism is a social process of collective empowerment, action, expression and

negotiation. In craftivism, engaging in the social and critical discourse around the work is central to its production and

dissemination. Practitioners are known as craftivists. The word 'craftivism' is a portmanteau of the words craft and activism.
