The Centre of Democracy and Tal Fitzpatrick have decided to postpone A Craftivist Manifesto which was scheduled for Wednesday 18 March. We were so excited to be officially launching our craftivism project, Stitch & Resist, this week, but we felt is was best for our community, to cancel our event.
In the difficult situation in which we all currently find ourselves it is more important than ever that we stay connected, and craftivism is one way that we can do this safely. Why not download our resource pack and get started?
You can share your thoughts, display your work, and stay in touch with other craftivists through our Facebook page. If you would like to join our mailing list, sign up to the Centre of Democracy newsletter to stay up to date with our news.
