Artivism: Radical Art for Rapid Response Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The gorgeous art of a protest sign or tearful political poetry at a rally evokes emotions for a radical movement. But how do we as movement organizers support our cultural producers with the political education they need to become powerful advocates with art? In this session we will discuss different artivist tactics for movement spaces to use. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of various ways to incorporate and value artists in movement spaces.
