THE ART OF DISSENT: Arts Activism & Radical Transformation

The Art of Dissent examines the way that artists and their art respond to social issues and speak to the struggles we face in our society. It also highlights the possibilities for the use of art as an integral part of social movements. The sessions will seek to offer a vision of dissent that encourages greater and more in-depth collaboration between artists and organizers in helping bring radical transformation.

Coordinators of this track are Dasan Ahanu and Monifa Lemons.


Tracks are looking for hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, and meet-ups that share stories, skills and best practices. Your session/workshop should be engaging and interactive. Including people who are direct stakeholders or who are directly impacted by the issue strongly aligns with Free Movement's goals of building grassroots power, and should be encompassed as often as possible.

Contact with questions and comments.

Sessions must be accessible to all bodies, genders, and ages by creating a space that is inclusive and welcoming.
