Activism for 'introverts': Craftivists find their political voice

Auckland crafters are on a mission to change the world one stitch at a time.

The newly-launched Craftivist​ Companions are turning to needlework to find their political voice at Ponsonby's Unitarian Church in central Auckland.

Ten “introverted” activists are creating mini protest banners
– the square placards will form a temporary quilt that will be presented to Auckland Council on April 1 for the updated living wage announcement.

The banners will then be left as “respectful graffiti” on public spaces such as lamp posts.

Group founder and church member Kay​ Parish​ said the goal was to get people thinking from a different perspective.

A midwife driven by a strong dislike of injustice, she was inspired by a movement in England led by Sarah Corbett and the Craftivist​ Collective.

“Sarah talks about craftivism as being an ideal form of activism for introverts, people who don’t love getting out there shouting and challenging people in a confrontational way,” said Parish.

“Craftivism is a way of approaching people more gently and presenting a message in a more respectful and thoughtful way.”

Corbett’s group persuaded British retailer Marks & Spencer to pay its workers a living wage by giving every board member a personalised hand-embroidered handkerchief explaining why paying a living wage should fit with their values.

“The board members really took that message on board ...and it just shifted their perspective,” Parish said.

The Titirangi resident said paying people a fair wage helped them live their lives with dignity.

Overhead Powerlines

Bowan from Hillsborough

Hi all,
Does anyone know or hear anything about the government looking at removing the overhead powerlines that run through Mt Roskill? Or am I delusional as it will never happen?
