Yarning for Unity is Craftbombing

Amazement Square!!

Creative Collective of Craftivists

interested in creating messages

of love, hope, and unity.

Yarning for Unity is a Creative Collective of Craftivists interested in volunteering to create public installations and immersive experiences that promote compassion and unity in local communities.

Yarning for Unity (Y4U) installations are similar to the worldwide phenomenon of yarn-bombing, where cityscapes are decorated with yarn to communicate social messages or produce joy. A Y4U installation, however, is a craftbombing because it includes elements of craft beyond yarn.

Y4U is happy to welcome all those interested in promoting compassion and unity in their local community. Submissions are open to all artists, makers, crafters, or compassionate citizens who want to help.

If you are interested in joining Y4U or learning more, please visit YarningforUnity.com,

or visit the Yarning for Unity page on Facebook & Instagram to stay up to date.

What is a craftbombing?

It’s a take on the term yarnbombing, which is a worldwide phenomenon featuring the decoration of buildings and cityscapes with yarn to communicate social messages or just brighten the world.

Our project opens the doors to all forms of craft.

What are craftivists?

Craftivism is a form of activism that is centered on practices of craft. To us, "craft" is any form of domestic arts, the works of independent makers, and unique creations by individuals made from any preferred medium.

What can you do?

Make works with messages of love, hope, and unity. You could create a project involving yarn, fabric, embroidery, wood.. you name it!

Why?

We are a collective that craftbombs cityscapes with messages of love, hope, and unity. We utilize the foundations of Guerrilla Kindness, Craftivism, and New Genre Public Art to create art projects that bring communities together through art and empathy.


We are activists who use kindness as a means to subvert the negativity in the world. We are a peaceful, non-violent, and civil collective that opens the door for artists and communities to have a voice and work together.


​​Our form of activism is centered on practices of craft. To us, "craft" is any form of domestic arts, the works of independent makers, and unique creations by individuals made from any preferred medium.​ In this way, our projects are accessible to all people, all ages, all means, and all minds.
