ART AND SOCIAL ACTIVISM FESTIVAL

We promote our community through pop-up festivals that present exhibitions of socially engaged artists, in dialogue with an Activism Market showcasing ethical designers and makers. We host “town hall” discussions, activism performances and participatory art workshops with peer cultural institutions and social justice organizations to further highlight the intersection of art and activism.

EXHIBITION

The theme for the 2019 festival is Dignity: Care for Each Other and Our Planet. Self-represented artists, small and nomadic galleries were selected following an "Open Call" and thoughtful review process by our curatorial committee. Selected works explore themes of identity, inequality, immigration, forced separation, and environmental degradation. The exhibition aims to inspire reflection, dialogue and action.

MEET OUR CURATORIAL COMMITTEE, SPEAKERS, AND ADVISORS

Because of the breadth and sensitivity of the festival's subject matter, we created a curatorial committee, and worked with peer cultural institutions as well as community and social justice organizations in order to incorporate a broad range of ideas and viewpoints.
