Community Stitch Night- 16Days Project

About this experience

The Comox Valley Transition Society and Comox Valley Arts invite you to participate in our community stitch project during the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence international campaign (November 25-December 10).

This project aims to raise awareness and creatively engage all community members to reflect on how gender-based violence impacts their community and ways they can commit to helping end it.


HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

Stitch kits will be provided and will include all the necessary supplies to stitch a square either by using a template provided or using your own design. No previous experience or skills are required and there is no “right” or “wrong” way to stitch your square. The kits are ready for distribution by Nov 25th and can be picked up at the following locations:
