Why Makers (Yes you!) Make Great Activists

Maker Faire Bay Area 2018

May 18th-20th

Presentation Craft Ribbon Recipient

Activism often conjures up quick transactional signing of petitions, clicktivism, loud and aggressive ways to demand justice. UK award-winning activist Sarah Corbett will explain how her creative 'gentle protest' approach to activism can be even more world-changing both personally and politically.
