Talk: Craftivism (Craft + Art + Activism)
Thursday, 24 October 2013
18.30 – 21.00
Ore Small Business & Cafe
Jl. Untung Suropati 83, Surabaya
How does hobby and craftivism bring about the means and conditions through which alternative values and ways of living can be imagined and shared, and practical examples for change defined and materialised? There is an increasing resurgence of amateurs and makers who, informed by peers, individual life experiences and expertise, are quietly active as they open up new channels of value and exchange by engaging in alternative craft economies and harnessing assets in often surprising, productive ways. Tarlen here will talk based on her experience managing an alternative bookstore, hobby clubs and an annual craft festival, Crafty Days.
Free and open for public.
Following the recent success of the JanSport x Pendleton x Benny Gold collection, JanSport has again decided to team up with San Francisco graphic designer turned streetwear visionary Benny Gold. The JanSport x Benny Gold Holiday 2013 collection consists of backpacks and a laptop sleeve, all of which are inspired by Native American art. There are three pack styles dubbed “Guerrero,” “Duboce” and “Right Pack,” and an additional 15″ Laptop Sleeve all of which combine Benny Gold’s distinctive aesthetic and JanSport’s quality construction. Each product features the same eye-catching print strategically placed on different sections of the pack, which is distinct to each style. A rugged black canvas forms the base for each backpack with brown leather detailing adding the final touch.
JANSPORT X PENDLETON X BENNY GOLD is exclusively available at ORE.
