Craftivism: The Art of Gentle Protest

Video with Christabel Reed, Sarah Corbett on Sunday 1st December 2019

Activism often conjures up quick transactional signing of petitions, clicktivism, loud and aggressive ways to demand justice.

Craftivist Collective provides ‘slow activism’ that uses craft as a meditative tool to stop, reflect and act on injustice issues in a transformative and gentle way. Join in this hopeful, creative and thoughtful way of doing activism.
