VIRTUAL Button Activism Workshop with CGE & LUAG

September 22, 2020 4:30PM to 5:30PM

Join the Center for Gender Equity (CGE) and the Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) for a workshop that explores the history and present-day significance of activist sentiments, such as pins and badges to support civic issues and justice movements. It will include an overview of  the Doing Democracy exhibition on view at LUAG as well as an introduction to the badges and pins worn by the suffragists, the protest buttons worn by antiwar activists during the Vietnam War, and the present-day buttons worn to support social justice movements. All of which will surely inspire the creation of your own pins and buttons. Register in advance and we will send you a suggested supply list and downloadable templates prior to the event.
