Art of Activism: Can Art Help Save the Planet?


*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 09/17/2020

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

At Murals Arts Philadelphia, we live and breathe the notion that art ignites change, but what does that look like in practice? How can artists use their mediums as a catalyst for change?

In this time of serious environmental upheaval, the need for change is immense. Art can bridge the gap between understanding and action by making even this existential threat feel concrete and present. Artist Ginger Rudolph will moderate a conversation with Ron Whyte, Gamar Markarian, and artist Ginssiyo Apara on the role of art in environmental justice work.
