When Art, Activism & Social/Personal Responsibility Converge..
I’m not sure why I thought of this today…perhaps I feel my commitment to helping with social change isn’t being carried out sufficiently right now.. and it’s true I’ve been seriously lacking in that department lately. But it’s more than that to me it’s about bringing my two passions together in a creative way that makes an impact and that actually helps and is considerate to the people involved. I am quick to criticize other’s efforts at times and I’m not sure what place I have to do that, I used to think despite the contraction advocating or shedding light on a cause to promote social change was actually fairly easy, now.. to what extent you’re actually helping is always the reigning question, but it becomes far more complicated than that. This video really made an impact on me and allowed me to see art activism in a different way..it highlighted a lot of the thoughts and opinions that comes with using art as a medium to promote activism it still brings up questions that I’m still trying to figure out, but I think that in itself is a good start.
