Award winning campaigner, founder of the Craftivist Collective and author of “How To Be A Craftivist: the art of gentle protest”, explains how the world can be influenced in artistic and non-aggressive ways.
If we want a world that is beautiful, kind and fair, shouldn’t our activism be beautiful, kind and fair? Award-winning campaigner and founder of the global Craftivist Collective Sarah Corbett explains shows how to respond to injustice not with apathy or aggression, but with gentle, effective protest. With thoughtful principles, practical examples and honest stories from her own experience as a once burnt-out activist, Corbett shows how activism through craft can produce long-lasting positive change that has helped change laws, business policies, hearts and minds.
“Sarah Corbett mixes an A grade mind with astonishing creativity and emotional awareness. In this book she examines and reframes activism in a way that makes for genuinely spirited, inclusive and effective intervention. Environmental and social justice campaigning typically favours the extrovert and those who self-identify (often rather loudly) as ‘leaders’. I think Sarah’s book changes that in a super intelligent, engaging way. More power to her!” – Lucy Siegle ( Journalist and author)
