This International Women's Day, celebrate the role of craft in activism, and join the conversation with Sarah Corbett, an award-winning activist.
The history of craft is also a history of action. Pioneering artists like Mary Watts used their creative output to address issues of social cohesion, gender equality and political change. Mary Watts' legacy in establishing the Art for All ethos at the Watts Gallery - Artists' Village, which continues today with our year-round focus on craft education and community action.
Celebrate the role of craft in activism on International Women's Day, and join the conversation with Sarah Corbett and Ashoka Fellow, Founding Director of the global Craftivist Collective. Through her inclusive and thoughtful dialogue about the relationship between craft and activism (craftivism), Corbett will weave together her practical experience of her 'gentle protest' craftivism that has helped change hearts, minds, policies and laws, with the history of craft as a tool for change, in the past, present and future.
This is an online talk that will be held on Zoom.
