Art and Activism II - Transforming culture through artistic influence
The panel discussion ‘Art and Activism II – Transforming culture through artistic influence’ explored the arts’ potential to challenge mainstream narratives and highlighted the power of art as a catalyst for cultural and societal change. It emphasised the urgency of addressing climate change, colonisation, capitalism and indigenous rights through artistic expression and collective action. Furthermore, it was discussed whether artists, by acknowledging and nurturing caring relationships with the non-human and more-than-human world, can inspire positive change and contribute to shaping better futures.
