The Vegas team is super excited to announce that we are launching a monthly event we’re calling Craft & Chat!
We wanted to create a space where people in the Las Vegas community could come together and talk about street harassment and other issues of oppression and violence. But that sounded just a little too depressing, so we thought, “okay but what if we were doing crafts at the same time?” Thus, Craft & Chat was born!
These awesome monthly events will be hosted by the glorious Toyboxx, Las Vegas’ first womyn-friendly, gender progressive, sexploration boutique! For this reason, Craft & Chat events will only be open to folks 18 and older. If you’re under 18 never fear! Hollaback Vegas is actually run but the youth group at The Rape Crisis Center so there will be plenty of awesomeness made just for you.
Our inaugural event, in honor of the month of February, will have a Galentine’s Day theme! We’ll celebrate gal on gal love, support, and friendship – turning our backs on competition and internalized misogyny. Our craft for the day will be making vulvas from craft felt. By request, we are limiting the inclusiveness of this event to women only in order to create a safe space AND allow us to focus the discussion entirely on relationships between women.
But don’t worry, future Craft & Chats will be open to people of all gender identities.
