Young people creating change in themselves and their communities though craft.
Making for Change is Craftspace’s project for young people that investigates positive social change through combining craft with activism (craftivism). Young people come together to learn, explore, discuss and make; creating campaigns around issues that are important to them in order to generate a change in themselves and their community.
We believe that making with your hands is powerful. Making for Change creates safe spaces where you can come together, learn new things and develop ideas. Through the process of making, those ideas become a reality.
We will be moving more Making for Change content to this space shortly, until then you can read more on the blog.
For 2021/22 we want to reach out to young people who are currently under-represented in the arts. We will be working with a young producer to host talks and events about making and activism giving a platform to voices who might not usually get to be heard.
