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.
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.
