Creative Activism: Past, Present, and Future
Daniela Molnar, November 11, 10 – 4
This workshop starts with an inspiring, multi-disciplinary, global tour through historical approaches that artists and designers have used to confront social/political/cultural/ecological crises.
Participants will then look at ways that contemporary artists are merging art and activism. The workshop will conclude with time to reflect on and discuss what it might look like for participants to engage with activism in their own creative way. While this workshop doesn’t necessarily need to align with any particular political ideology, it should.
