Sarah Corbett’s manifesto for quiet activism is a book to initiate debates, to enable collaboration in place of confrontation.

 

Sarah is an award-winning speaker, professional activist, author and the founder of Craftivist Collective, a social enterprise which uses the technique of craftivism, combining craft and activism, to engage people in social justice issues “in a quiet, non-confrontational manner involving pretty, handcrafted gestures of defiance”.

 

Pam Warhurst is best known for co-founding Incredible Edible in Todmorden. Pam chairs Pennine Prospects which works with local authorities, government agencies, businesses, voluntary organisations and the local community to deliver a range of initiatives, including the objectives of the Heritage Strategy for the South Pennines. She works as part of a global network of social entrepreneurs, as an Ashoka Fellow.
