CROCHET JAM
IMAGE: Artadia Celebrates 15th Anniversary with an Exhibition & Crochet Jam, Curator: Gianni Jetzer, Longhouse Projects, NYC 2014

Crochet Jams engage the public to think differently about the role of art within community and the power of art within society. Crochet Jam, a public, art-making event that's embracing and inclusive, with no attempt made to dictate the creative process nor judge the finished project, is liberating, empowering, and transcending.
