Creatives have often played a key role in social movements. Visual and performing artists use their talents for community improvement, stimulating culture, all while addressing the critical needs of communities. Come and join a discussion on how artists have contributed their talents to a cause, and organisations that have collaborated with artists to raise awareness.
Favianna Rodriguez once said: “You may attend a rally or vote, but you also read books, listen to music, engage with visual art, turn on the radio and create your identity through culture. Artists are central, not peripheral, to social change. To have the movements that make the wave, you need cultural workers.”
