Katie Shaw

Campaigns & Policies Officer

I’ve been an active campaigner since the age of 8 on animal rights, education and social justice. I currently work for a national education campaigning organisation and I specialise in campaigns on further education issues. For the last decade I’ve been involved in my local punk rock & DIY scene putting on shows that mix both music and making, running craft and skills sharing events and organising an inclusive knitting group. I have facilitated networking sessions using craft activities, taught participants of varied abilities different craft skills and taking part in craftivist activities, using craft as a campaigning tool for social justice. I also make rad mixtapes.
