KIN will be taking over the Arnolfini for a long weekend with a multi-room extravaganza of music, conversations, games, skill-sharing and theatrical explorations, with activist meet-ups, live art and wandering provocateurs. Each of the six rooms has a full programme, and the spaces have been uniquely designed with participation and connection in mind. Please note that capacities are limited for each room, so please arrive early to your chosen sessions to guarantee entry.

Workshop: Stitchable Change-makers
A lucky 20 people will be able to follow up Sarah’s inspiring talk with a practical workshop in Craftivism.
We know that changemakers aren’t super heroes; they’re just people who connect their values to their actions. Every single one of us has gifts and talents we can use to be the change we wish to see in the world. At key times we need to make time to slow down, keep a cool head & think critically about how we can be positive change makers. We hope this ‘inner activism’ project is a useful tool & physical reminder of your journey as a craftivist & brilliant global citizen.
What inspires us about Malala, JK Rowling, Desmond Tutu, Abraham Lincoln, and Eleanor Roosevelt – the folk we’ve included in this new Craftivist Collective project – is how different they are. We purposely chose a range of ages, genders, nationalities, skills and backgrounds because we understand that changemakers don’t all look the same or act the same.
On each stitchable ‘dot-to-dot’ card, we’ve included a quote from each of them for you to reflect on, and on the back there’s a bit of information about the respective changemaker for those that might not know much about their background or that what they’ve done. On a separate card there are clear instructions plus some crafter-thought questions to reflect on whilst stitching. Choose your favourite, or get the whole set!
This super-ethically-made project is a chance to slow down and – in the safe environment that craft creates – reflect on what values are threaded through the changemakers we’re stitching, and challenge ourselves to decide how we can thread our own values into the choices we make every day in order to become awesome global citizens.
Once it’s finished, each card is also a tactile physical reminder to strive to put your values into practice in all you do. Keep it at home or display it at work, wherever is most helpful for you. It might even start some great conversations with others.
Sarah will also be giving a talk on Sunday Day.
