Sarah Corbett - professional campaigner and founder of the Craftivist Collective - shares her journey from burnt-out activist, tired of marching, confrontation and demonizing opposition, towards a more respectful activism: using craft to contemplate global issues, provoke thought and start conversations rather than arguments; to engage, empower and encourage people on and offline to become part of change in the face of injustice, inequality and prejudice. Interwoven with Sarah\'s personal stories of causes fought are ideas and suggestions for every novice craftivist. From how to think about the medium itself, to looking at color, fonts, size and message, here is inspiration for every detail of your creation. In today\'s world it\'s easy to feel helpless, but here is a book to initiate debates rather than shouting matches, to enable collaboration in place of confrontation. Gentleness can be a great strength, and quiet action can sometimes speak as powerfully amid the noise as the loudest voice. And if we want a world that is beautiful, kind and fair ... shouldn\'t our activism be beautiful, kind and fair?\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Craftivism -- Gentle protest -- Slow activism -- Mindful activism -- Crafterthoughts -- Communal crafting -- Inner activism -- The gift -- Graceful activism -- Compete with beauty -- The message -- Catalyst not conclusion -- Intriguing craftivism -- Pretty protests -- Wearing your convictions -- Reaching out -- Shareability -- Measuring success.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4069123669<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Nonfiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/972538887<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"How to be a craftivist : the art of gentle protest<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1012139094<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.overdrive.com\/search?q=9EF54B25-FE7B-48DF-8357-D215134CFF05<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=243&titleID=3562396<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/samples.overdrive.com\/?crid=9ef54b25-fe7b-48df-8357-d215134cff05&.epub-sample.overdrive.com<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9781783524082<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=100434&titleID=3562396<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1885160<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> \"https:\/\/img1.od-cdn.com\/ImageType-100\/0211-1\/{9EF54B25-FE7B-48DF-8357-D215134CFF05}Img100.jpg<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781783524082<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\numbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBB7E0669<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1012139094<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
