The Center for Artistic Activism is a research and training institute dedicated to making activism more creative and art more effective. Read more
WHAT IS C4AA?
We run programs that help activists create more like artists and artists strategize more like activists.  We do rigorous research on artistic activism, past and present, and reconnoiter related fields. The result is better informed theory and more effective practice. The result is Artistic Activism. Read more
WHAT WE DO
Artistic Activism is neither art nor activism.
It’s both: a dynamic hybrid that leverages the affective qualities of art and the effective capabilities of activism.
Like art and activism, artistic activism only works when it moves us. Read more

STEPHEN DUNCOMBE

Steve Duncombe, a veteran activist, was sick of planning protests that were routine, colorless and ineffective. Steve Lambert, an accomplished artist, was frustrated by political art that few saw and impacted less. Together, they founded the Center for Artistic Activism in 2009. Rebecca Bray, former Chief of Experience Design at the Smithsonian Museum, joined the Steve’s in 2016 and today the C4AA runs training workshops, mentors artist and activist groups, and conducts research on the æfficacy of artistic activism world-wide.
