Guerrilla Kindness & Other Acts of Creative Resistance
This is the first book by artist, scholar, activist, YouTube art teacher, and craftivism expert Sayraphim Lothian.
Craft Consciously. Craftivism can be your voice of resistance. Craftivism is a form of activism that gives people a voice when they feel voiceless and power where they feel powerless.
Craftivism is a movement growing worldwide. Hand-crafted works are being used to highlight political issues, creatively engage in activism, and encourage change in the world. Craftivists employ their works to open a space for people to be introduced to issues and to broaden the discussion surrounding them. While it might seem that this most colorful movement began recently, creative resistance has been with us for centuries around the globe, and craftivism and makers stating their mind through the medium of art is here to stay.
Tap into creative resistance. Artist, scholar, activist, and YouTube art teacher Sayraphim Lothian gives you an introduction to the art of craftivism and provides a brief history of creative resistance. Learn how to make and use various crafts for protest and political purposes.
