Can art be a tool for social change? How do artists negotiate their artist/activist identities? What do creative practices bring to movement building?
Join our exciting conversation with artists working in different Muslim contexts around the world as they talk about their work, the inspirations and challenges that shape it, and their thoughts on how art can be a vehicle to infuse energy and creativity into advocacy and activism, to reach new audiences, and to create conversations that advance social justice issues. Sheena Baharudin (Malaysia) will moderate fellow panelists Alaa Satir (Sudan/UK), Azzmia (France), Felukah (Egypt/USA), and Sonaksha Iyengar (India).
