As local events are now taking place online, progressive vendors have struggled with craft-show organizers rejecting or censoring their works for being considered too political. These vendors, as a result, have trouble finding their target audience as well as connecting with their community. Pride, Not Prejudice is here to fix this problem.
We’ve found ourselves at the end of another rollercoaster week, and nothing warms the spirits (or your hands) like a jam packed weekend of events, shows, and laid back hangs with your nearest and dearest.
The bad news: November has arrived. The warmth of summer has fallen away with the leaves on the trees and November’s chill and rain are setting in like damp socks on cold feet. The good news: the weekend has arrived. The weather may be less than favourable, but there is still a ton to enjoy on this wonderful break from the work week.
The Feminist Fair is a craft market with a social justice twist, bringing together DIY art and politics. The fifth annual event takes place November 4 from 11am-4pm at Makerspace North.
