Craftivism: Giving Voice through Community Development

Our community projects use an empowering model of engagement that invites local people to respond to a question via a range of textile art and craft techniques. Participants contribute to a project that reflects – and sometimes positively progresses – our community’s beliefs and thoughts.

Our outreach work has explored:

  • why World War I is relevant to our lives 100 years on
  • environmental issues
  • the changing roles of women
  • the isolation caused by lack of language abilities
  • neighbourliness

We are also one of three groups that collaborated globally to deliver “You are so very Beautiful,” an action initiated by Betsy Greer.

We take our programmes and projects out to community events and groups as much as possible, courtesy of a range of grants, contracts, and sponsorship support.
