The Key Role of Socially Engaged Art in Transforming Society 

The essential role of the arts in social movements is as powerful today as it’s ever been. From murals that launch national political resistance movements to anthems that power activist marches, the spark of human creativity has always supported the burning desire for justice, peace, environmental sanity and human rights. Join some extraordinary artists and change-makers for a conversation about how art and human creativity are essential in efforts to transform and rebuild today’s deeply troubled and intensely complicated world. Hosted by Sarah Crowell, Artistic Director Emerita of the legendary dance troupe Destiny Arts. With: David Solnit, activist visual artist extraordinaire; Samara Gaev, founder and Artistic Director of Truthworker Theater Company.
