Having delightfully discovered Sarah Corbett’s book on Craftivism, the gentle art of protest, I began to think more deeply about the ways in which my work could have an impact on the wider community and this has led to one of my current projects which is to develop a Western Australia #craftivistcollective group. As an introvert living in an extroverted world it can often be difficult to belong to a larger group. Many people underestimate the strength and courage it takes to reach out and I want to develop a safe space for people to quietly share their ideas on how together we can create a better future for our planet whilst slowly stitching our change making thoughts.

Anyone who is interested in getting involved in the Perth Craftivists can contact me at melaleucarise@gmail.com or text 0459322820
