Poppies 4 Palestine @ Queer AF – Event


Come join the community art project, Poppies for Palestine, where we will gather to craft poppy flowers to bring awareness to the genocide being commited in Gaza, tgather donations and send aid to the children affected, and to inspire hope for a future of love, compassion, and freedom.
This fundraiser and workshop event will take place during the first three Saturdays in July, at three different, queer owned spaces.
To take part in the workshop we are asking for a sliding scale donation of $15-20+, during which we will teach you how to craft these flowers from wire & duct tape. You can then choose to add your flowers to the community art display, or take them home with you as a memory. Come by yourself or with a group! The workshop is from 6-9pm but you are welcome to come and go as you please. Estimated time to craft 1 flower is approx. 20-30 minutes, but a group working together can make a lot more!

Drinks available.

All proceeds go to PCRF (Palestine Children’s Relief Fund)

One of the national flowers of Palestine is the poppy, with its colors of red, green, black & white representing the colors of the flag. It symbolizes solidarity with the people of Palestine and their connection to the land. A land that is being destroyed and poisoned. How contaminated will the soil be when this is all over? Will poppies even be able to grow?
