If we want a world that is beautiful, kind and fair, shouldn’t our activism be beautiful, kind and fair?

Scouser, award-winning campaigner and founder of the global Craftivist Collective Sarah Corbett shows how to respond to injustice not with apathy or aggression, but with gentle, effective protest. She will be in conversation with Laura Robertson, Co-Founder and Editor of The Double Negative about her new book ‘How To Be A Craftivist: the art of gentle protest’ a manifesto for a more respectful and contemplative activism; for conversation and collaboration where too often there is division and conflict; for using craft to engage, empower and encourage us all to be the change we wish to see in the world. Come and learn more, ask questions and celebrate the launch of this new book. 

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.
