Join artist Tal Fitzpatrick in a hands-on banner workshop and learn all about Craftivism.

Changemakers: Crafting a difference is an exhibition and workshop first created to coincide with the United Nations’ 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

Featuring banners created by Tal Fitzpatrick using mostly upcycled materials, it invites visitors to join in some craftivism and learn more about how various initiatives, including action for economic empowerment, can serve to reduce or prevent violence against women.

Changemakers: Crafting a difference was developed by the Museum of Australian Democracy and is proudly supported by CommBank Next Chapter, a program helping survivors of financial abuse to achieve long-term financial independence.

Age range
Due to the nature of the exhibition we recommend ages 15+.
The themes discussed may be confronting and difficult at times however hugely valuable and important. There will be quiet space available.

No experience required.

What to bring
Everything you need will be supplied.
If you are a keen crafter you are welcome to bring you own tools.
