2022 Virtual Community Summit Opening Keynote: Reimagining Relationships Through Artful Activism
How does artful activism allow us not just to exist in the world we’re given, but to create new ways of being for ourselves and others?
In this presentation and in their work, Lateef McLeod and DJ Savarese ask us to envision a world in which every body and every voice is essential. What might that world be like? How are artful activism and disability justice already hard at work disrupting cultural stereotypes, creating collaborative connections, and seeding possibilities for lasting liberatory change—both political and cultural? And what might each of you do to promote artful activism in your own communities?
