What is it: 3rd annual Crafts for a Cause event
What we’re doing: bringing together 15 organizations and artists for a craft fair that supports social justice struggles
Three years ago, Danielle and Lisa decided that the city needed a craft fair that would highlight the crafts and art in support of local social justice organizations. And where better to hold it than Rhizome Café on Broadway, since Rhizome hosts community meetings, fundraisers, events, and social events throughout the year.
On Saturday, December 4th Crafts for a Cause attendees can shop for tshirts, prints, posters, coffee, ethical textiles, buttons, and other crafts made by organizations and artists. To support the ongoing work of the participating organizations, partial proceeds from artists' sales are shared amongst the groups. If your significant other insists they’d rather wait outside than come into a craft fair, you can mention that Rhizome is a licensed establishment too.
