Author(s): Igniting Change
The people at Igniting Change, the intentionally tiny charity behind this book, are moved by the humanity and courage of those they work with - people who are doing it tough in our communities - and are guided and inspired by their stories. It is through this lens they have created Small Ways to Shape Our World, a thought-provoking, conversation-starting, society-changing guide to reshaping our world. It's a powerful reminder that there is more to life than what you see. That people are more important than labels. That little things can have enormous impact. Jane Tewson, the founder of Igniting Change, often hears from those she works with, `Jane, I just want to be heard - why is it that people continue to talk about us without us?' Igniting Change wants them to be heard too. As one of Jane's favourite pages in the book says, `The art of listening is about not speaking.' Through practical and meaningful pairings of simple design and thought-provoking words, Small Ways to Shape Our World encourages small acts of kindness and quiet rebellion in our everyday lives. This book would not have been possible without the design expertise and support of TBWA Melbourne and Hardie Grant Books, who gave their time pro bono to this initiative.
