Oral Arts vs. political activism
Location: Mozaïek Studio
Friday, November 1
Duration: 75 minutes
Should artists focus on creating art for the sake of art, or should they use their tools to create a change in politics/society? Can art even give answers to social/political issues if art is supposed to keep asking questions, never fully having the answers? Or is the act of asking questions in itself a political act? In the Oral Arts vs. Political Activism talk a panel of performers from the storytelling world and other arts talk about the pros and cons of a thorny subject in the time of the refugee crisis and #metoo.
