About the Book

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, to provoke thought, to engage, empower and encourage people to become part of change in the face of injustice.
