In April 2018, I set up the group Gerillaslöjd Malmö / Malmö Craftivists and we began embroidering, knitting, crocheting and crafting together.
Our first large project was an exhibition for the 6th International Degrowth Conference for ecological sustainability and social equity that took place in Folkets park, Malmö, 21-25 August 2018.
We thought about a world that is not defined by endless economic growth. What would it look like? Here are some of our answers.
The works in the exhibition were created by:
Johanna Blomberg •
Reparera mera (Repair more)
Sofia Fransén •
Inte sitta inne när allt hoppt är ute (Why are you inside when hope is outside?)
Erika Jacobs Lord •
Creativity is making marvellous out of the discarded
Eileen Laurie •
All you need is less
AnnaMaria Nilsson-Hjort •
Du är natur (You are nature), Kärleken är starkast (Love is the greatest), There is nothing but change
Nihal Ragab •
Save the bees
