2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Emily Bunker’s project will begin by interviewing women-identifying makers about their work in the craft and construction trades in Philadelphia, two male-dominated industries. The publishing platform for these unheard labor histories will be a microsite accompanied by photos taken by the interviewees themselves in their respective shops and/or workplaces. In addition to recording these histories, Emily will build wooden selfie sticks (using a lathe and traditional joinery techniques) and distribute them to teen girls interested in the trades/crafts as a tool for them to engage with other mentor/role-models in these fields and to celebrate and document their own work.
