Out of the Shadows
Rug Hooking Event
Leading up to our forum on Sexualized Human Trafficking and Exploitation – Collaborating to END
Demand, the Tri-County Women’s Centre will be hosting a Rug Hooking event on Tuesday June 13th at
the Women’s Centre from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm.
The rug project, called "Out of the Shadows", will be working with people whose lives have been
affected by trafficking, to design a traditional Nova Scotia hooked rug.
The rug will travel the province, on a Cheticamp frame, providing an opportunity for people to come
together to show support for survivors and contribute to an expression of solidarity, healing and beauty
as our response to the violence and an end to trafficking. The rug will be a symbol of community
resistance to traffickers and buyers of trafficked persons.
Everyone will have a chance to work a few loops into the rug and/or to cut wool for it. This event is open
to everyone. Please join us.
