Episode 17: Weaving and Community Healing with Cynthia Alberto
This week on the podcast I talked with Cynthia Alberto. Cynthia is Filipina, an artist, weaver, weaving activist, teacher, and founder/director of the Brooklyn-based weaving studio, Weaving Hand. She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology with a BFA in Textile Surface Design and exhibits her work worldwide. We had a wide ranging discussion about how she creates interactive art pieces by weaving with communities, what inspired her to start her weaving studio in Brooklyn, upcoming opportunities to join in her work in NYC, and lots more.
