An exhibition featuring The Knitting Nannas Against Gas and Greed (KNAG).
Taking on big mining companies one loop at a time, the Knitting Nanna’s Against Gas knit, educate and protest against environmental destruction, crafting hats, scarfs, flags and a better future for Australia’s children.
The Knitting Nanna’s draw on a broad history of knitting as a tool for non-violent political activism, commonly referred to today as craftivism. This exhibition explores how craft, design and activism have come together to help raise awareness of the issues arising in the gas fields and/or mining or other local issues.
The Nanna’s started by setting up tea time with knitting needles in hand at coal mining sites throughout Australia and have made a splash on social media in their distinctive black and yellow colours. Come and join the Nannalution!
