The craftivism manifesto

Awhile ago I asked people to help me write a manifesto for craftivism. Twelve people shared their thoughts; this is what we created. These thoughts perfectly encapsulate how I envisioned craftivism from the beginning and I am thankful beyond words to have had input from such amazing and inspiring makers.

This is not the end all be all definition of craftivism, nor is any other document. Craftivism is what you make of it, as it was born out of DIY punk roots on my end and activist craft has been made without rules for thousands of years before I came along. As the manifesto says, “Your craft is your voice. Use it well.” So, go, use your craft well. And make your own manifesto if you see fit!

Craftivism is a way of looking at life where voicing opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger, your compassion deeper & your quest for justice more infinite.
