        Social Justice Sewing Academy


        May 11, 2019

        Oklahoma County Extension Office

        9 am - 3 pm

        Registration/Application - PDF Form MS Word Form

        Executive Director Sara Trail will be coming to Oklahoma Saturday, May 11, 2019 to conduct a Train-the-Trainer workshop for the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) at the Oklahoma County Extension office from 9 am – 3 pm. Cost $15 per person.  Deadline for applications and payment on or before May 1.


        Train-the-Trainer (T3) is a concept where teams are trained to both conduct a Sewing Academy, as well as train other to do an Academy. See application for team details and expectations.

        Founded in 2017, the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) is a youth education program that bridges artistic expression with anullctivism to advocate for social justice. Through a series of hands-on workshops in schools, prisons and community centers across the country, SJSA empowers youth to use textile art as a vehicle for personal transformation, community cohesion and as agents of social change. Young artists make art that explores issues such as gender discrimination, mass incarceration, gun violence and gentrification. The powerful imagery created in cloth quilt blocks tells their stories to be displayed in museums, galleries and quilt shows across the country. This visual dialogue bridges differences in race, age and socioeconomics and sparks conversations and action in households across the country.

        ** Participation limited.  First priority will be given to the SJSA Teams, as our priority is to train others in how to conduct SJSA in their school, community, library, etc.  Individual registrations will be honored based date received and space availability.
