Yarn Bombing is the global initiative for Deafblind Awareness Week 2021 (21st-27th June).
Yarn Bombing is a form of street art where knitted or crochet squares adorn an object in a public space.
This largescale tactile art project aims to unite members of the Deafblind community and increase awareness and knowledge of deafblindness within the broader community. Anyone can participate in this event by knitting or crocheting pieces to add to installations in different Australian states. For more details, open the Facebook event in a new tab.
