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 the 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 the 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, network, and offers an introduction to 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. 

If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to info@intercult.se “ I would like to participate in the meeting on 26th February”.
