Activist Advent 2016

Wherever you sit on the political spectrum and wherever you are in the world, I think we can all agree that 2016 has been a great big pair of saggy, holey, crusty pants. We at Ungagged have decided the only response is to make this festive season the kindest, most loving one yet.

There are always little ways we can make the world better. In our Ungagged Activist Advent Calendar we will be suggesting little ways each day you can make your community and the world a slightly better place.

The images on our #UngaggedAdvent are mostly the amazing work of Debra Torrance. You can see more of her work on her Ungagged Art page.

John McHarg and Red Raiph also helped with some art for our Activist Advent. John’s Ungagged Art page is here and Raiph’s is here.
