Poz Youth Meetup: Needle Felting Night

Attention Youth 29 living with HIV or Hep C, living in Metro Vancouver!

You are invited to join us and craft with Needle Felting!
This event will be an casual opportunity to meet, chat, and make Felt Art with peers!

Needle Felting is a kind of craft, where we can use special notched needles, to bind together fabrics like wool. Needle Felting can be used to add designs to certain clothing, or create soft fabric figures and accessories. If you are welcome to join us whether you are an expert or have never heard of needle felting before.

Dinner, Snacks and Supplies will be provided for free.
If you have any Dietary Restrictions, please let us know.

To help maintain confidentiality for our peers, location details will be shared when you RSVP.

RSVP if you are interested in Creating Art this Saturday evening with YouthCO, by contacting William at williamf@youthco.org.

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
