Event description

Description

We are proud to welcome Sarah Corbett back to The Egg Factory for an evening of lively discussion with Helen Meller, Director of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and to launch her new book How to be a Craftivist.

In these times of social, political and economic uncertainty, a new handbook is offering citizens the opportunity to take part in a quiet but powerful form of activism that provokes collaboration and conversation in place of division and conflict.

How to be a Craftivist: The Art of Gentle Protest has been designed to help people use craftivism (craft + activism) to thread love, humility and beauty through their activism instead of hate, ugliness or aggression.

How to be a Craftivist Book Cover

Craftivism is for everyone from skilled crafters to burnt out activists, and those people who want to challenge injustice in the world but don’t know what to do, where to start or how to prioritise their energies and time.


“A tremendous book, one that shows you how to communicate with people in a thoughtful and effective way.” - Jimmy McGovern screenwriter


Written by Sarah Corbett, award-winning campaigner and founder of the Craftivist Collective, this comprehensive new book will cover subjects including:

  • How to do slow and mindful activism using handicrafts

  • How to provoke rather than preach at people using street craft art

  • How to use thought provoking gifts to kindly challenge power holders

  • How to be a critical friend not an aggressive enemy

  • How to use personal craftivism as a tool to encourage us to practice what we preach

  • How to measure the success of your craftivism activities to hone your craft

The book has been endorsed by influencers ranging from Jon Ronson, Lucy Siegle and Jimmy McGovern, to representatives from Oxfam, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tatty Devine and Goldsmiths University.
