► 15 October, 2019 #Tuesdaytalks featuring Paula Meninato
· ABOUT ·
The workshop will commence with a brief overview of the structure of political organizing and the psychology behind oppressive ideologies. We will then discuss how artists, activists, and community organizers can use art to effectively dismantle systems of oppression, especially speciesism. In particular, we will focus on art that has incited political action, community arts, successfully changed hearts and minds, and artists that have successfully installed political art within government institutions.
While the workshop is about art, community organizers and activists may find the information helpful while integrating art as part of their overall strategy.
