This 2-hour seminar is an overview of creative activism.

This seminar was recorded Feb 22, 2021 as a prerequisite to the SuperCorsa online course. But it can stand on its own as an introduction to how creative activism can be useful to your work. You’ll find the video recording of the seminar below, and we’ve included lots of links and resources below that were mentioned in the class.

Beyond Raising Awareness: An Introduction to Creative Activism. 

VIDEO BELOW

This online workshop, led by the directors of the Center for Artistic Activism, gives participants tools to successfully strategize using creativity, spectacle, surprise and vision. “Raising awareness” won’t cut it – we need to get real about how we succeed and fail at moving people to act. Drawing on over ten years of experience working with change-makers around the world, the Center for Artistic Activism shares surprising stories of people fighting for and winning equality and access using culture and creativity. These success stories serve as jumping-off points for in-depth discussion and attendees will leave with tools to apply to all kinds of advocacy. Creativity can keep your efforts to make change active, motivated and energized.
