Art as activism for social and political change


Room B

Fri, 06.09.2024  16:40-17:20  Central European Time (CET)

We will introduce the audience to The Art Of Compassion Project, an international collective of vegan artists using creativity to raise awareness of animal rights issues. We will discuss the historical importance of art as a tool for social and political change and examine its use as a significant part of the fight to dismantle both the societal norms and the harmful narratives of mainstream media around our use of other animals.

Finally, we would like to invite other activists to brainstorm with us on how to effectively take art activism out of vegan spaces and into the eyeline of the general public.
