Description

“The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible” said Toni Cade Bambara. As conservative and neoliberal governments across the globe continue to undermine principles of social equality, exercise violent/nationalistic border policies, hinder climate justice in the name of financial and political power, how do graphic and media artists utilise the power of their visual communication skills to bring about social change for the common good, e.g. stopping mass extinction, adopting clean, sustainable energy options, promoting a more just distribution of wealth?

The symposium will be held virtually, in partnership with the exhibition ‘Panels that Transform’ hosted by Macquarie University Art Gallery
