Art and Social Justice: A conversation about how artists promote, inform, and shape social change
October 11, 2012, 5:30PM
There has never been a movement for social change without art and visual communications being central to that movement.
Graphics are powerful living reminders of struggles for worldwide peace and justice. When it comes to issues of immigration, reproductive justice, or women's issues, much of the public dialogue is laced with hate, myths, stereotypes, and fear. However, there is a growing movement of artists around the country using visual tools for resistance, and to creating powerful, unapologetic images that disturb the powers that be. Artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez will discuss how artists are inspiring, informing and shaping social change.
Join me for a conversation about how artists promote, inform & shape social change.
