How to be a Craftivist ☆ Espectful 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 ineuality and prejudiceInterwoven 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 colour fonts size and messa. technicality did not finish Craftivist reads like a dissertation trying to reach the he character limit There were multiple times in the book that I didn’t think were particularly of relevance or helpful to me in any way and this made it really hard to convince myself to keep reading Corbett has some really great and valuable insights and sometimes it’s inspiring But these parts are hidden in between repetition and rambling I don’t want or need to know how exhaustedly successful the craftivist collective is I had to skip sections even entire pages and to the end entire chapters I couldn’t help but feeling that I would’ve enjoyed the book so much if it was cut down to about 13rd if it’s size and I’m pretty sure it would’ve been able to give me all the exact same information Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Sarah Corbett

Unraveling  the problemComing from a political family I have always been political Moreover I took women’s studies and took part in many campaigns during my time at university  In addition I work as a volunteer  with the RNIB and Oxfam on the campaigns that matter to me As a disabled person those activities have recently taken on a greater urgency So my campaigning life has become busier and intense Recently therefore I have been feeling tired disillusioned and unfocused I am finding it hard to know where to spend my campaigning energies; which campaigns to prioritise when they all seem so important We live in turbulent times; Trump in the White House Brexit sexual abuse scandals police violence the deaths of black men hate crimes against marginalized groups global warming and austerity still ruining peoples lives  The list goes on and on This has led many campaigners including the author of this blog to feel tired and dispiritedSarah Corbett mirroring my own concerns speaks of the tendency of campaigners to spread themselves too thinly; to feel that they have to be everywhere doing everything fighting every battle  This leads to the temptation to cut corners and to complete tasks that can be undertaken uickly  These methods are often unsuccessful leaving the campaigners angry and disillusioned Moreover the author states that campaigners often driven by anger react in a knee jerk manner to situations that arise  This Corbet tells us can often lead to mistakes and knee jerk actions can often lead to negative outcomes Crafting a solutionSarah instructs us not just to react to negative situations as they arise but rather to think about the world we wish to craft In my case that world would be one in which disabled people and other marginalized groups; would feel safe able to live a productive life  have our voices heard and live in a manner that respects both other people and the world in which we live Corbett argues that campaigners need to take a step back and think about; what campaigns they focus on why they feel the need to campaign where their skills can be best utilized and what methods will get the best outcomes We need to ensure often in consultation with those individuals who we are seeking to help that our campaigns will have a positive impact on the issues that we care about The author also challenges campaigners to break their addiction to uick campaign methods ie; the online petition and template letter Campaigners are instructed to slow down our campaigning; to take time to craft methods that will create the best possible outcomes  For example she argues that we should get to know our representatives and personalize our interactions with them This book came at exactly the right time for me and while I will not take her every suggestion on board I will slow down both my writing and campaigning I will see my writing as part of my campaigning I will take time to write letters that engage the reader and not simply send a template letter or sign a petition I will take time on my reviews and other writing If the book is good enough to write about I should give it the time it deserves If the issue is important enough to raise passion I should be able to express my passions in a manner that engages the reader  The arguments contained within this book are too broad and too deep to express in a short post Therefore I have picked the bits that spoke to me and left other sections for the reader to find on their own For example I have left out any discussion of craft You should really get hold of a copy and read it I highly recommend this book
