Craftivism activity:

The world feels much more of a global village in today’s culturally diverse society.

In the lead up to Refugee Week, this craftivism workshop will give space to reflect upon how we perceive and portray our own identity and the identity of others. Whilst hand stitching your own luggage tag to keep, hang off your bag or leave somewhere as provocative street art, you can meditate on and discuss what it would feel like to be a refugee and what personal baggage we put on others.

Led Sarah Corbett, founder of the Craftivist Collective

Supported by Coats Crafts who provide all of the craft resources needed.
