About the Book

"An energetic, informative, and inspiring exploration of craftivism -- the intersection of art and activism -- throughout American history, with particular focus on the present day"--

Book Synopsis

An informative and inspiring exploration of craftivism -- the intersection of handicraft and activism -- designed to encourage young creators while providing meaningful historical context.

You don't have to be old enough to vote to drive political change.

In Crafting Change, author, TV producer, and craftivist Jessica Vitkus explores the rich lineage of craftivism, with profiles of craftivisit icons, many of whom are women and people of color. This YA non-fiction book shines a light on artist-driven projects like This Is Not a Gun - workshops where people sculpt objects the police have mistaken for a gun in fatal shootings -- alongside creative movements that mobilized entire communities, like the AIDS Memorial Quilt and the Pussyhat project for the 2017 Women's March. This engaging narrative combines compelling artist interviews with full-color photos of creators and crafts alike.

A perfect book for teens who want to channel their creativity into political action, with ideas for simple projects sure to appeal to budding craftivists.
