About Craftivist Collective
The Craftivist Collective is exactly that – a collective, an inclusive group of people committed to using thoughtful, beautiful crafted works to help themselves and encourage others be the positive change they wish to see in the world.
But it started with just one person: Sarah Corbett, an award-winning campaigner with 30 years’ practical experience as an activist.
Sarah grew up in a low income area and was attending demonstrations with her parents on local and global issues by the age of three. She went on to have a successful career as a professional campaigner for NGOs including Christian Aid and Oxfam, and the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID).
