The History of Art and Social Change

What is the role of the artist in society? An artist can lead, follow, uplift or provoke with their work. Creative thinking for social change can come from politicians, economists or business leaders just as it can come from musicians, journalists and visual artists. The arts provide pleasure and creative inspiration; they also foster dialogue and bring important issues to the public eye. Aside from documenting history, Do we believe artists provoke Cross-cultural understanding? Can they enhance community engagement? Do they have an important role in exploring creative solutions to social issues? Join us in this lively presentation and discussion about the role of art in history and current society.
