Andy Smith was one of Extinction Rebellion’s key action planners and has been involved in some of the movement's most memorable creative visual actions. Andy is also an artist, in this talk Andy will discuss where art and protest meet and how his own work has influenced his activism and vice-versa.
Art has the ability to raise awareness and to tell stories; art can reflect back at us the world we live in, oftentimes with greater clarity or nuance. Art can also depict visions of the future, and shed light on histories and cultures gone by, both key to reimagining the world we want to create. But beyond raising awareness and contributing to storytelling, art can play an active role in effecting change. ART CAN DISRUPT.
