Join us on Friday, September 24th from 6:00-7:30 pm for an artist talk in WAHC’s back garden with artist, activist, and writer Patty Krawec. This event will commemorate this year's Orange Shirt Day. Patty will discuss her process of learning to make ribbon skirts and the important role that community plays in their craft. She will also share how the skirts themselves create community and forge relationships through the stories sewn into them and through their wearers.

About the artist:

Patty Krawec is an Anishnaabe Ukrainian writer, co-host of the podcast Medicine for the Resistance, and host of the online book club Ambe: A year of Indigenous reading. For 16 years she was an active union member and social worker. Her work now centers on examining and disrupting social and political narratives of power. Her first book, which deals with the untangling colonialism from our histories, will be published by Broadleaf Books in 2022 and other writings have been published by Rampant Magazine and Sojourners.
