Cultural Organizing at the Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed Conference

The session focused on the intersection between art, culture, and organizing around social change. It addressed both tensions as well as synergies in this work and offered examples of different approaches – some generated by artists and some generated by community organizers. This multiracial, intergenerational, and multidisciplinary dialogue between civically engaged artists, cultural organizers, and scholars included the perspectives of both longtime community arts practitioners working for social change, and those newer to the field.
