From different forms of agitation – disruption, confrontation and subversion – to dialogical and representative forms of storytelling and mapping, to the creation of new imaginaries with which to move into the future, artists use a vast toolbox of tactics to incite social and political change.
In this panel discussion, Central Australian filmmaker Alex Kelly, Quandamooka woman and artist Megan Cope, and Melbourne-based artist and researcher Amy Spiers discuss their work, their influences and their ideas around issues of environmental and social justice.
Presented by A Centre for Everything as part of ART / POLITICS / ACTION symposium and ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017.
