From the Wesleyan Student Craft Fair:
Over the past couple of years at Wesleyan, we have witnessed innumerable creative works by our peers. While much talent is on display in the classroom, performances and art exhibitions, we know a lot of creativity takes place behind-the-scenes.
We want to open up a public venue for Wesleyan students to share, barter, sell and exchange their own works with their peers. Thus, we propose a Wesleyan Student Crafts Fair. By crafts we mean anything hand-made: prints, jewelry, illustrations, clothing, journals, collages, zines, and so on. But don’t let these examples limit you — be as creative as you would like to be. We envision a fun-filled day of creativity, sharing, music, and food!
Please e-mail wes.diy.fair(at)gmail.com by the first day of classes, January 21st (Wednesday) if you are interested in participating in the fair. For those of you who may need help getting materials — we’re going to try our best to organize some funding, so don’t let that discourage you. You do not need to know what you want to create at this time, but please let us know if you are interested in being part of this day. We can only move forward with plans once we know that there is a genuine interest. After this initial stage, we will provide more detailed information about the logistics of the fair. We also plan to have people congregate to share their ideas and give input on how to organize this event.
So stay tuned and forward this email to anyone and everyone you think may want to join!
