The theme is Resist. To stoke the creative fires, here are a few possible interpretations:
  • Resist as a physical technique (in dyeing or color discharge; in felting)
  • Resisting bias, prejudice, bigotry, persecution, hate, or oppression
  • Resisting challenging personal issues (health, family, age-related)
  • Resisting the effects of global conditions or crises (climate, education, poverty, immigration, war)
