Art is a Hammer: Reshaping Reality through Cultural Activism workshop.
How can art be fashioned as a tool at the service of our vision for a more just and peaceful world? This interactive workshop presentation combines performance, story-telling, slide-shows, and video to illuminate the powerful symbiosis between art and activism. “Art is Our Weapon, Our Medicine, Our Voice, and Our Vision:” using their motto as a guide, Alixa and Naima share tactics and strategies from their walks of life as cultural workers, illuminating how poetry, media-making, creative interventions and collaborative public art can be used to strengthen our movements for social justice. Participants will have the opportunity to share examples of arts activism from their own experiences and communities, and should be prepared to get creative, imaginative, and inspired!
