SITUATE PANEL: CAN ART & ACTION SAVE THE WORLD? #artandaction
When are direct action, political protest and overt interventions creative or otherwise most effective? And when might such explicit activity hinder rather than progress a cause?
The discussion will be hosted by theatre-maker Deborah Pollard and will feature activist, politician and artist Bob Brown, Australian artist Cigdem Aydemir (2013 SITUATE Arts Lab) South African artist Sethembile Msezane (2016 SITUATE Arts Lab) and Tasmanian writer and researcher Greg Lehman.
