Artivism // Can Art Revolutionise?
Eve Ensler defines artivism as ‘where art is activated and activism is made much more layered, ambiguous, passionate, fiery, revolutionary.’
From the Stop The War Coalition to the Arab Springs to the anti-globalisation protests, Artivism has the power to grip the global community and revolutionise charitable and social justice movements.
The ISIS Magazine has gathered together a group of experts from across the arts world what exactly artivism is. Our panel discussion will aim to look at the context, issues and debate surrounding Artivism, including engagement, effectiveness, anonymity, counter-cultural appropriation, marketing, and the furthering of the art and protest movement.
