This year, BUST’s annual Brooklyn Craftacular will feature the BUST School for Creative Living, a catalog of over a hundred crafting and wellness workshops, panels and talks with established writers and activists, and a lineup of kickass female-fronted bands and artists. The two-day celebration will take place at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint this weekend, December 9th and 10th.
On Saturday, memoirist and New York Times contributor Lindy West, #ShoutYourAbortion Founding Director Amelia Bonow, and artist Poppy Liu will discuss Storytelling as Activism, and the power of sharing our individual lived experiences. On Sunday, actor and poet Amber Tamblyn will spearhead a panel on Fighting Patriarchal Narratives and Being Allies to Each Other in the Era of Trump alongside writers Jamia Wilson and Alanna Bennett and BUST Co-Founder Laurie Henzel.
As for classes, there’s something for everyone. Get in touch with your artsy side at Suffragette City’s DIY zine workshop, learn to silkscreen with Shoestring Press, explore BDSM for Beginners with Sophie St. Thomas and Aviva Diamond, or learn the basics of reading tarot and opening your chakras if you’re feeling spiritual. Then, cap the day off at the Craftacular’s music festival — an all-access music pass is only $5 per day.
Check out the rest of the wildly talented speakers, artists, and teachers who will be at the Craftacular on our website, and buy your full-day pass here.
