The Art of Activism Hugh Chapman, 26 January 2014 Changing the world and having fun doing it The idea is to convene a network of artists who are interested in creative activism. A network for - sharing experience and ideas - developing practice - devising interventions, creating alternatives & experimenting with new forms of resistance Thank you the people who joined us for our session: Keir Cooper, Kelly Smith, Jane Hobson, Noreen Meehan, Simon Bayly, Ellie DuBois, Jennifer Lunn, Alice Fernbank, Dominic Campbell, Vanessa Hammick and we also talked with Gemma and James from Action Hero, Tom from Populace Theatre and others Our plans are ongoing. We are thinking of setting up an event in May to continue the conversation. Please get in touch if you are interested in taking part.

If the digging is best done through performance; we'll perform; if it needs a talk, we'll research and talk; if it needs a meal, we'll cook it; if it needs direct action, we'll be there. Our work is not fiction or entertainment, it is building society.” from Platform Manifesto, 1987.
