Arts for Social Change: Bringing Campaigners & Creatives Together (Manchester)
Following the success of our first Arts for Social Change meeting, and as part of the new Cardboard Camp programme in Manchester, we’re excited to share with you our follow up meeting.
How can art and creativity affect social and political change? And how can we, as campaigners or artists, work together to challenge perceptions and affect real social, systemic and political change?
From music, theatre, contemporary art, graffiti and banners, to mass-distributed media such as films and photography; to design and branding; Art and Culture frame our understanding of the world around us – challenging and changing our perception of our world and the issues within it.
We’re inviting organisations from both the campaigning and arts worlds to discuss:
- How people in arts and culture can have a greater and lasting social and political impact with their work
- How campaigners can harness the arts and culture as an essential tool of creating innovative, change-making campaigns
- How we can work together better and become a force for making the world a better place
Confirmed attendees include Sean McAllister and Steve Arnott (from the documentary A Northern Soul), Grime4Corbyn, Culture Unstained, Sheila McKechnie Foundation, and With One Voice Festival speaking about the Jigsaw of Homeless Support.
Thursday 28 March, 11-5pm
