Culture is Power: Reshaping the Narrative Through Art-Based Interventions
TRACK: Master Speakers

Culture surrounds us all the time. It shapes our identity and forges our collective imagination.  How do you create powerful works of art and culture that can reach new audiences, ignite public consciousness, and shift ideas? How do you collaborate on innovative design and media projects with artists, performers and creators of all kinds? Award-winning artist and activist, Favianna Rodriguez, will share examples and train participants to understand the power of art and culture to inspire, mobilize, and help spur the imagination beyond the realms of what politics alone can do. This workshop includes a small hands-on art activity.
