p98 of Red Magazine’s first Anti-Apathy issue (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?
