oleknyc Part of my #publicart project in #India is to work with #refugees from #Afghanistan. For these #women this is the only chance to get employed. Here I'm teaching them my #crochet technique. #loopafterloop #woman4woman thank you dear @oliviadar for the introduction and helping with the first step #startdelhi #startindia #olek @startindia #namasteolek 5d
  •   moonbray That's so awesome! 5d
  •   daphneadair This is great. Do you know if there are jobs in the field for them beyond the art installation? (Not to be critical; just interested to know.) 5d
  •   abby1204 So inspiring!! Ancient traditions of women crafting together is such a beautiful thing. 5d
  •   killadi787 This is so cool I can't take it @sfrost1127 @ashleighmeghan @melaferra 5d
  •   pangeaseed @oleknyc - "Education is the movement from darkness to light." - Allan Bloom 5d
  •   warheadthequeen That's a beautiful thing for you to do, truly wonderful C: 5d
  •   oliviadar @daphneadair yes, I have started to work with this group of afghani refugee women in Delhi since last year. We are giving them regular work. The project with Olek is a great opportunity for them to work and learn new skills with crochet. 4d
  •   daphneadair @oliviadar thank you for the response - and this effort. 4d

oleknyc Is it going to be one of these journeys that I will be totally exhausted while making, on an edge of quitting and running away, but once completed I will be able to spread my wings and with the new energy I will fly away to my new destination to bring colors and light? I make #magic. But cannot transform the layers of #dust into #art. Where is the bottle of the #genie when needed? I think I might have left it on Hawaiian beach. #olek #startindia #startdelhi #namasteolek 1w

oleknyc Damn right woman!!!! In times when we are facing serious #environmental issues, it's truly devastating that we still need to bother with basic #EQUALRIGHTS like #wageequality #PATRICIAARQUETTE #THISISAWOMAN ・・・. Thank you @rosemcgowan for posting and being such an amazing fighter for women. Love u 1w
  •   bugphoto And what a class act and human being, right? Doesn't get any better than this! 1w
  •   dolenta_ Love this woman! 1w
  •   domadordepollos Ok. 1w
  •   in_vlnce_ible Wage labour = slave labour. Equal wages for women? How about dissolving the corporate terrorist machine brought to you by the financiers. Issue such a feminism serve to distract from the real problems, don't be a sheep 1w
  •   purple_snapdragon @warheadthequeen yes there is a wage gap but it is formed by the natural differences in payment for different jobs. Any alleged inequality based in this statistic is, for a lack of a better word, baseless. If there are any such inequalities of payment the solution is simple:report them. Unless the courts find the employer guilty of breaking the afore mentioned law there's probably no legitimate inequality of pay. 5d
  •   warheadthequeen @purple_snapdragon If it really were that simple, don't you think less people would be complaining about it? Not going to argue about it anyway, I'll leave that to news articles and blogs. 5d
  •   purple_snapdragon @warheadthequeen well since they're complaining about a statistic that they don't even understand I don't put much stick in what they think. The simple fact of the matter is that this whole commotion is based on sensationalist misinformation. There is no problem and everyone is complaining about nothing. 5d

oleknyc With all the traveling and constant #jetleg I'm not sure what day it's but let's call it early #tbt or #fashionflashback or one of those things. Either way, it brings memories when I called @gozralozano 11pm asking him to jump on a first plane from #London to #Rotterdam and do his #magic for the opening #tfofin @boijmans. Sure he did!! I'm blessed with #talented #true #friends around the world #gozralozano #makeupartist #savedmyass... I mean #face 1w

oleknyc "#RespiratorySystem"
#Olek for #powwowhawaii
Respiratory System is a contemporary commentary about ocean conservation. Combining traditional techniques of crocheting and sewing with a traditional sailing canoe, Olek has once again pushed the boundaries of fashion, art, crafts and public art. #crochet #naturalfibers #hemp #laboroflove #saveourseas #alohaolek @honolulumuseum #hawaii
