What is Social Artivism?
Society is this intricate, fascinating and complex creature that refuses to yield to any one leader, ideology or path. How does one then influence the society?
How do we create change that lasts? Culture that allows more freedom and challenge structures that constrain us?
We see this as an art -the art of activism. This is not activism with its firebrand “anti -XYZ” sloganeering. It is not art which can be an indulgent self-expressive pursuit.
Rather, it is Artivism: understanding the ART of social change. The most complex of all arts, a dance cum improvisational theatre cum Socratic dialogue cum coming together of other disciplines for the noble and timeless pursuit of emancipation.
