Podcast - Wollstonecraftivism: A discussion about craftivism with Sade English and Anna Fearon

In this episode of our Wollstonecraftivism programme for young people, we chat with Sade English and Anna Fearon. Sade is an artist and designer while Anna works with photography and film. They also work together as the co-founders of The Black Exchange which is focused on discussing black social issues and fighting for justice.

Looking for ways to get your learners/children busy this upcoming summer holiday?

Working with The Wollstonecraft Society we have put together a free weekly programme for young people over the holidays. Inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft’s legacy, learners will learn about social justice causes, learn about different crafts, experiment and learn new skills and create 6 Craftivist pieces themselves expressing how they feel.

What is ‘craftivism’? “A way at looking at life where voicing opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger, your compassion deeper and your quest for justice more infinite.”

Each episode learners will:

be introduced to a new topic of activism, like ‘helping the environment’ or ‘Black Lives Matter’

Meet a ‘Craftivist’ (someone who uses craft in their activism) and watch an interview explaining and showing their work

Follow a tutorial on how to create their own Craftivist work that week
