Artivism – the intersection of art and activism.
Artivism is a practice consisting in creating artistic forms of political expression, to raise awareness and promote social, economic and political change. It aims to respond to local and global injustices through the lens of creative expression. Through Activism, artistic practices – from oral to visual art – become means of resistance in time of crisis / oppression.
While the term artivism is relatively new, art has been used to depict and fight injustices for a long time.
