🦋WELCOME crafters, makers, creatives & helpers from around the world
Together, we'll build a global #Craftivist Directory community
Craftivism is all about creating meaningful, impactful works of art to inspire change.
Craftivists use traditional, as well as non-traditional crafting techniques, such as embroidery, crochet, papercrafts, beading, woodworking, and painting to create items with social and political messages.
These crafted pieces can include banners, posters, and even clothing, and serve as gentle reminders of important issues. Plus, the act of creating in itself can also be a form of self-care and mindfulness for craftivists.

Craftivists gentle protest often involves connecting with others to make a greater impact. By creating items in groups or with the help of others, craftivists build connections and relationships within their communities.
Crafting can also serve as a meaningful way of sparking conversations about social justice, human rights, and other important hyper-local to global issues. These conversations can lead to increased awareness and a greater understanding of the problems we face as a society.
Craftivism is not just about protesting and advocating for change; it's also about celebrating the good things in life. Craftivists use their skills to create beautiful and meaningful pieces that bring awareness to different perspectives on local to global issues.
This can include creating art that celebrates diversity and inclusivity or making items that promote thought provoking ideas.
By taking the time to celebrate, we are shown that change can come from small, personal actions, and that we all have the power to make a difference in the world.
