research for Walking Libraries at 'Kraftmaking the Future' in Transylvania

I am so thrilled to announce my participation in a mid-summer workshop in Cincu, Brasov County, Romania. This week long gathering in Transylvania has been organized by KraftMade cultural preservation and craft/textiles studio. In addition to other workshops, my Walking Libraries project will be shared as an immersive experience for place-making observation and rural documentation.

The Walking Libraries 2016 – 2018 online archive is now an open online resource for artifacts and materials research on and in partnership with the land. Submissions are accepted and will be reviewed from both rural and urban regions.
