Art, Politics, Spirit: Braided Activism for Culture Shift
Feedback form is now closed.

The Water Protectors at Standing Rock have shown the world that in order to create authentic social change, conventional categories separating art from spirituality and politics have to be dissolved. Their braided activism offers us a model of how we can make the shift to a world in which we can all show up whole, moving our hearts and minds with creativity to work for social and environmental justice. Hosted by cultural activist and writer Arlene Goldbard. With: T. Lulani Arquette (Native Hawaiian), President/CEO of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation; Cynthia Tom, visual artist, cultural curator, founder of A PLACE OF HER OWN, Board President, Asian American Women Artists Association; Rosa Gonzalez, Director of Applied Practice, Movement Strategy Center.
