Artivism - Raise your voice
From the Arab Spring to the streets of Moscow to Occupy Wall Street, the world is witnessing a new era of political activism. Culture and the Arts have been at the center of this perfect storm using the unprecedented power of smartphone video linked with social networks to reach a global audience. With the future of culture so intricately tied up with politics the question now facing our community is not how to engage, but when.
