INVITATION to women from Polish community
Baltic Sisterhood of change- Creative Waves inspirational meeting
STOCKHOLM Saturday 26 february 2022
Embroidery is not just embroidery, and cooking is not just food! Today we think of traditionally female gatherings around crafts mainly in terms of their final results, forgetting that in folk culture they have also been used to maintain important community building and sisterhoods. This aspect inspired the international project Creative Waves – Baltic Sisterhood for Change.
Creative Waves, Baltic Sisterhood of Change, is a collaboration between Sweden, Poland, Kaliningrad and Estonia that focuses on arts and crafts, modern design and development of digital marketing skills.
Creative Waves supports women’s creative and social entrepreneurship, creates a common space for women to collaborate, talk about their experiences, networking and offers an introduction with new ways of thinking within the digital world.
Creative Waves aims to build an international bridge between women craft artists, design, digital marketing and technology.

Let’s start creating together!
