You’re Invited! How To Be A Craftivist Liverpool Book Launch 10 Oct


Feeling powerless? Interested in alternative forms of activism? Join us on the 10 October 2017 to discuss how Sarah Corbett of the Craftivist Collective is championing the art of gentle protest…

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

We’re thrilled to be helping Scouser, award-winning campaigner and founder of the global Craftivist Collective, Sarah Corbett, to launch her brand new book in her home city next week. Entitled How To Be A Craftivist: The Art of Gentle Protest, the book has been published by Unbound, and is 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.

I’ll be in conversation with Corbett, discussing the thoughtful principles and practical examples outlined in the book, honest stories from her own experiences as a once burnt-out activist (growing up in Everton and working for international charities in London), and how she sees activism through craft as being able to produce long-lasting, positive change.

Presented by The Double Negative and our friends at Liverpool-based charity Writing on the Wall, doors will open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start at Unit 51 Coffee Bar in Liverpool’s ace Baltic Triangle area. Meet Corbett in person, chat to others, and peruse her books, craftivism DIY kits and tools from the brilliant News from Nowhere crew. See you there!
