Abstract

Craftivism is an ongoing movement, combining craft with activism, to bring about positive change in the world. There is a growing emphasis on the need for occupational therapists to engage with the politics of the profession to tackle occupational challenges and injustice. This opinion piece considers whether, with the historical links to and resurgence of craft internationally within the profession, now is the time for occupational therapists to engage in craftivism to effect positive change and transformation for a just and inclusive society. It suggests that craftivism may enable the profession to find its political voice and suggests ideas for action.
