Online – Via Zoom Speaker: Sarah Corbett The history of craft is also a history of action. Pioneering artists like Mary Watts used their creative output to address issues of social cohesion, gender equality and political change. Her legacy in establishing the Art for All ethos at the Watts Gallery - Artists' Village continues today with our year-round focus on craft education and community action. This International Women's Day, to celebrate the role of craft in activism, join the conversation with Sarah Corbett, an award-winning activist, Ashoka Fellow and the Founding Director of the global Craftivist Collective. Through her inclusive and thoughtful dialogue about the relationship between craft and activism (craftivism), Corbett will weave together her practical experience of her 'gentle protest' craftivism that has helped change hearts, minds, policies and laws, with the history of craft as a tool for change, in the past, present and future.
