John Lewis coined the term -- good trouble. His philosophy was, "When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just -- say something, do something. Get in trouble, good trouble, necessary trouble."
When you can't say something, or do something -- for whatever the reason -- then make something. Craftivism is; craft + activism = craftivism
If Covid-19 keeps you inside, unable to protest together outside.
If you are an introvert wanting a voice.
If you want to get involved in your way, then choose a cause and make something.
Using art as protest is not a new concept.
In the early 1900s, Suffragettes would craft banners, brooches, signs, and sashes in their colours purple, green, and white.
Throughout the ages artists painted, sculpted, weaved, knitted, and sewed their voice in protest, demonstration, and good trouble.
So, what do you think? Are you a Craftivist?
