Art as Resistance

Wednesday, March 13 | 1-2:30pm

Santa Rosa Intercultural Center, Pioneer 380

  • more info

    Together, communities & artists have asked, how can art be a tool for social change? Art, and more specifically, public art has been vital in resistance movements throughout the world, sharing messages of struggle and triumph with a broader audience. Here in Sonoma County many women of color are creating public and accessible art that is challenging hegemonic narratives of this region and its peoples. In this panel, local artists will share with us the ways in which they use art to illustrate narratives of resistance, joy, culture, and community situated within the context of social justice and social change.
