Why activists need art to create social change

A conversation with the Center’s founders, Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert, on the importance of fighting within the terrain of popular culture to reach a mass audience.


“Although a free companion workbook is available for those looking to sharpen their practical skills, “The Art of Activism” is more than a nuts and bolts “how-to” guide. Duncombe and Lambert also deliver thought-provoking discussions on the theoretical underpinnings of artistic activism, drawing on fields as diverse as marketing, cognitive science, and pop culture. To help clarify theories and inspire creativity, the book is packed with a diverse selection of case studies.”
