Between art and activism

Faced with the urgency of the social and ecological crisis it is clear that everything has to be transformed, and quick. This includes the way we make art and the way we struggle for better worlds. The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination’s most popular workshop explores how we can escape the old forms and rituals of protest to find a space in-between art and activism, where the poetic and the pragmatic fuse into successful moments of rebellion. A space for those who define themselves as artists, activists or neither, this workshop invites participants to co-design (and implement) creative forms of disobedience and involves tools of self management and consensus decision making.

Maximum participants: 30
