Community Engagement Meeting 

Monday, Dec. 11, 2023
7 p.m. 

Community Engagement Meeting

We’re off to an enthusiastic start with 13 people attending the first Zoom meeting. Lots of great ideas were shared on the directions to take HGB’s expanded Community Engagement efforts. An annual FiberFest, community co-created projects, a presence at events such as NoBo First Fridays and the Farmers Market, and reaching a more diverse audience are some of the options suggested. Each of these requires lots of planning, marketing, assessing, relationship-building and actual doing!

Colorado Grasslands Challenge 

Inspired by our 2023 March and April guest speakers, both of whom talked about how fiber artists respond to their surroundings in their work, and art can be activism, Handweavers Guild of Boulder challenges you to let your imagination run Wild this year as you knit, crochet, felt, bead, quilt, weave, embroider, etc, inspired by the topic of our Colorado prairie and grassland.

We’ll come together in late Fall to see what we all made, and if we have a good body of work, look for a place to display it in 2024, perhaps in conjunction with the Guild’s 60th anniversary.

We've compiled many great resources to inspire you, which can be found here or here as a pdf.
