Art and Campaigning

The Melbourne Campaigner’s Network is a monthly gathering for campaigners, activists, and organisers to discuss ideas, exchange resources and discover new approaches to social change.

Four great speakers confirmed:

The March MCN will explore the connection between art and campaigning. Come along to:

  • Explore how art can be used in a campaign – to make injustice visible, raise awareness, amplify concerns, gain support, build the movement and put pressure on power-holders.
  • See examples of how art has been used effectively in past campaigns.
  • Hear from artists producing work in support of struggles for social and environmental justice.
  • Find out how to work with artists to improve the effectiveness of your campaigning.

The session is a collaboration between Melbourne Campaigners’ Network and Arena Project Space and includes display of political artworks, a panel of artists, and the usual discussion and networking.

Location:  Arena Project Space, 2 Kerr St Fitzroy
Time:  6pm til 8pm.
Date:  Thursday 15 March
