In this episode I chat to one of my internet hero’s who I’ve been following for a long time now.
Sarah Corbett is a ‘craftivist’ – an activist who uses craft to raise awareness and have an impact on some of societies biggest issues, and the founder of Craftivist Collective.

We talk about Sarah’s work, and the things that drive her, and how she balances the work she does, creating the impact she wants to, and making a living. Sarah has come up with a brilliantly creative way of funding her work in 2017, but she shares how vulnerable and difficult the process was. As part of this we talk about why it is that sometimes people never question paying Starbucks for their coffee, or BP for their petrol, yet they will often question why they need to pay people like Sarah who are making amazing things happen.
