At a time when the patchwork of liberties is fraying, craftivism is a global movement that combines craft and activism into quietly powerful protest.
The #UDHRquilt Project features never before seen work from a global craftivism project. Stitching in local and global stories; see the intricate detail of these quilts that represent the world’s conscience.
Aided by the power of social media, Australian craftivist Tal Fitzpatrick and fellow USA based craftivist Stephanie Dunlap put the call out for collaborators. 131 craftivists from across the globe came together to showcase the power of their voices through the work of their hands.
Through the creation of four quilts, each embroidered with the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the project draws attention to the way human rights are challenged around the world today.
