Gentleness can be a great strength, and quiet action can sometimes speak as powerfully amid the noise as the loudest voice. And if we want a world that is beautiful, kind and fair… shouldn’t our activism be beautiful, kind and fair?
“I share my journey from burnt-out activist, tired of marching, confrontation and demonizing opposition, towards a more respectful activism: using craft to contemplate global issues, provoke thought and start conversations rather than arguments; to engage, empower and encourage people on and offline to become part of change in the face of injustice, inequality and prejudice” Sarah Corbett
A few words from some other inspiring Change-Makers:
“Sarah Corbett’s book is inspiring and challenging at the same time. Her message is to free people from the chains of consumerism and equip them to enter the house of activism. We are not mere consumers – we are makers, we are artists and we are citizens. Sarah Corbett reminds us that through crafts and creativity, through arts and imagination, we can build a new world and create a sustainable future for all.”
Satish Kumar, Founder of Schumacher College and Editor Emeritus, Resurgence and Ecologist
“Sarah Corbett mixes an A grade mind with astonishing creativity and emotional awareness. In this book she examines and reframes activism in a way that makes for genuinely spirited, inclusive and effective intervention. Environmental and social justice campaigning typically favours the extrovert and those who self-identify (often rather loudly) as ‘leaders’. I think Sarah’s book changes that in a super intelligent, engaging way. More power to her!”
