Craftivism

September 3, 2012

Betsy Greer is the mother of craftivism. So, she is a crafter and she is an activist, too.

But what is craftivism? Craftivism is the practice of engaged creativity, especially regarding political or social causes. Craftivism allows practitioners to customize their particular skills to address particular causes. Through activities such as teaching knitting lessons, crocheting stuff for the less fortunate, and sewing blankets for abandoned animals, craftivism allows for creativity to expand its previous boundaries and to enter the arena of activism.
