Creative Activism at NWAMI

Date: 15/02/18

Time: 1pm – 3pm

Where: NWAMI, 10 Greenfield Rd, Colwyn Bay, LL29 8EP

As part of Ailie Rutherford’s project ‘Undercurrents’ Ailie is looking for participants to become part of a new and exciting Creative Activism group.

We would like to invite people from all walks of life to take part in an initial conversation about creative activism bringing together artists, creative thinkers and local activists to look at how we can work together.

What we hope to do:

· Find new ways to combine the skills of artists, activists, communities and individuals to instigate the changes we want to happen in our towns, communities, cities, cultures; at local, national and global level

· Create new links or strengthen connections between activism and creative practices

What is creative activism?

Creative activism is about using innovative and creative methods to instigate social and environmental change.

It is often activism that doesn’t look like activism, and art that doesn’t look like art, popping up in unlikely places (e.g. not a gallery) or take on unfamiliar forms (e.g. not a protest march)

Creative activism creates an opportunity to bypass seemingly fixed political ideas and moral ideals and remap cognitive patterns. Surprise is a moment when hearts can be touched and minds reached, and both changed. Paraphrased from artisticactivism.org

**Please note** This will be a repeat session of the workshops Ailie Rutherford ran in January.
