We are proud to say that we are featured in Red Magazine’s first Anti-Apathy Issue (May 2015) out now. Check us out on p98.
“When craft speaks quietly, the world listens” – Red Magazine May 2015
This section of the magazine is a great reflective read and a good challenge to us all to see that campaigning and challenging harmful cultures works & can be done in different ways that make a difference including amongst others:
Katherine Hamnett reminds us that fashion can carry a powerful important message and how she uses them for activism.
Laura Bates, founder of Everyday Sexism reminds us of the power a hashtag can have to be a catalyst for conversations, awareness of harmful habits and demanding a shift in culture & law.
Jamie Bygn, founder of World Book Night reminds us of the power books can have to inspire us, change the way we see ourselves and empathise with others
Us! Craftivist Collective on the power of slow, gentle, joyful activism through needlework. The lovely journalist Ali Pantony who interviewed me in my favourite social enterprise coffee shop Paper & Cup send a lovely email encouraging us to keep doing our craftivism.

It’s well worth a read and is in shops now. It’s one of the few magazines my mum reads when she has time on a holiday break mostly because of it’s thoughtful articles. I hope Red Magazine make this ‘Anti-Apathy Issue’ a permanent annual issue don’t you? What other ways do you think we can improve the world that hasn’t been featured?
