Crafted with Pride
Book Launch & In Conversation
Join us at the Whitworth for an in conversation for the launch of Daniel Fountain's new book Crafted with Pride: Queer Craft and Activism in Contemporary Britain.
Daniel will be joined by contributors, Sarah-Joy Ford and Lois Stone and convened by queer practitioner Dominic Bilton. Crafted with Pride explores queer craft and the material cultures of LGBTQ+ activism in Britain since the 1980s.
From handmade clothing and protest banners to radical self-published zines and manifestos, there is a long history of using craft and DIY processes to explore identities, bring communities together, and encourage social and political change. Yet, many of these histories remain undocumented and are insufficiently researched. Join us at the Crafted with Pride event to hear more.
