Activism often conjures up quick transactional signing of petitions, clicktivism and loud and aggressive ways to demand justice. Craftivist Collective provide ‘slow activism’ that uses craft to act on injustice issues in a transformative and gentle way.
Craftivist Sarah Corbett grew up in an activist family and started doing craftivism (craft + activism) in 2008 as a reaction to traditional forms of activism. Join Sarah at The Egg Factory to hear about how to change the world one stitch at a time.
