What is Craftivism?

This project explicitly employs craftivist methods, but you may be wondering… what is this newfangled term??? Not knowing it does not mean you are a luddite - rather that you sit with the majority of the people.

Craftivism a term popularised by Betsy Greer,  is the marriage of craft and activism. Practitioners often use crafts tradtionally associated with femininity for social change. It uses elements of participatory art which fosters inclusivity in order to provide a platform for collective narrative within a community.

This is a pretty simple explanation, Sometimes it is best to look at the projects out there.
