Description

Join us for the national launch of #DareToDream a craftivism project from Heritage Open Days in collaboration with award- winning activist, author and founder of the global Craftivist Collective Sarah Corbett. Hosted by Craft Revolution, with volunteers including from Extinction Rebellion Totnes in the magical setting of Dartington Hall. This positive, hopeful and hands-on unique event will be sharing stories of dreamers of the past who have shaped our present day for the better to then inspire and empower us to help create a happier, healtheir and more harmonious future for all. No craft resources or skills needed, just an open heart and open mind. Book your place before it sells out.

Not to be missed, this evening will start with a calm and creative workshop led by Corbett. Ethically sourced kits will be provided free of charge along side locally-sourced drinks and snacks. No craft resources or skills needed, just an open heart and open mind. Every ticket is a raffle ticket.



Neuroscientist Dr Charlotte Rae:

“By combining active pursuit of positive goals, with the unique fabric cloud the Dare to Dream activity makes use of these known neurobehavioural strategies to create effective change.”
