Craftivism: the art of gentle protest

Slow AND QUIET
Activism often conjures up quick transactional signing of petitions, clicktivism, loud and aggressive ways to demand justice. Come and hear how activism can also be slow, quiet, small and compassionate.
Author and award-winning activist Sarah Corbett set up the global Craftivist Collective in 2009 after demand from individuals, groups and organisations around the world wanted to take part in her unique methodology to craftivism (craft+activism) called ‘Gentle Protest’.
Corbett has helped change laws, policies, hearts and minds around the world through her slower, quieter and more intimate form of activism rooted in neuroscience and positive psychology that uses the process of craft to help the changemaker engage deeply and thoughtfully in social change issues. And uses the handmade objects as either encouraging gifts for decision-makers or small pieces of provocative street art.
Come and learn how you can use gentle craftivism to help you personally, as well as have a positive impact in Coventry especially during 2021 as the City of Culture. The session is appropriate for 14+ but targeted at adults 18+
