Cultural activism

Our cultural activities at KSL Study Centre  are based on cultural activism: This means culture that involves social commentary and gives everyone an opportunity to participate. Cultural activism provides new perspectives and creative ways for influencing and citizen activism through different workshops, events and projects.

Cultural activism encourages taking the role of an active citizen. The activity is communal in nature and participation is easy.


Craftivism is a form of cultural activism in which you can express your opinions and values through crafts. Through handicraft, everyone can deal with their own emotions and thoughts, and make a statement on issues that seem personally important.
