2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Emily Bunker’s project will begin by organizing and leading a tour of five women-led workshops across Philadelphia designed for girl-identifying and gender non-conforming teens interested in the trades/crafts.  Emily will build wooden selfie sticks (using a lathe and traditional joinery techniques) and distribute them as a tool for participants to engage with other mentor/role-models in these fields and to celebrate and document their own work. Documentation for #Craftswomen Workshop Tours will be housed on www.craftswomenproject.org, accompanied by resources for young folks looking to access these cis-male dominated fields.
