In The Softer Side of Regeneration (aka What do you wish for your Community?) we made cushion covers with letters, to spell messages. The project caught the attention of the WIlliam Morris Gallery, where we ultimately provided family activities in association with Bob & Roberta Smith’s exhibition ‘Art is a Human Right.’ Read more about it.
Our craftivism projects connect people experiencing vulnerable circumstances via co-creation and sharing of expressive artwork. Our craftivism amplifies their voices thereby informing others about their experiences and perspectives. Real change becomes possible when individuals and communities collaborate.
Our projects produce statement artworks, and provoke positive conversations that involve all stakeholders in progressing meaningful social change.
We devise projects with and for communities.
We are commissioned to help partners design and deliver projects that spark conversations and engagement – ‘creatively instigating‘.
Occasionally, like with the “The Quarantine Quilt Project,’ we can’t help but run with a project idea of our own.
Our Craftivism work is now featured in two authoritative books.
