Art Activism

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

Within the activism space can emerge a fantastic array of art from performance to sculptures to music to dance. As with all the other tools in the toolbox - art is another essential tool that helps create awareness, education and inspiration. As an example, the Bob Brown Foundation hosts Art for Takayna every Easter and an art exhibition in Salamanca to raise money for environmental protection.
