Creative Resistance

Led by Elizabeth Foster

Why is creativity so closely associated with social justice movements? Today, we’ll talk about some of the art associated with social justice, from protest songs to drag. We’ll also explore some of the ways in which resistance movements have responded creatively to the forces, and the inherent creativity that is required to imagine a different and more equitable world.
