Protest Art and The Art of Protest: An Assembly

How do works of art become acts of political discourse? How might artists be at the center of viable, enduring, meaningful resistance and dialogue within their communities?

This August 18-21, 2017, Vermont College of Fine Arts will host Protest Art / Art of Protest: an assembly. This event will be a multi-disciplinary exploration of the form and content, purpose, and history of protest art and the art of protest. Join us in a shared determination to connect artistic practice to political protest, and with full awareness that the mindful process of artistic innovation is inherently political.

Lectures, workshops, and process statements will provide the jumping off points for hands-on collaborative and individual creative projects of meaningful and expressive resistance in the service of social justice.

Online pre- and post-planning, discussion forums, and work-sharing will extend the engagement and provide a site for inquiry. Post-assembly activities include an ongoing website for digital discussion and project development, as well as a self-assessment process.

Whether you are an artist, musician, designer, filmmaker, or writer, we are determined to foster an ongoing collective in a playful and inventive atmosphere in which you and your work will make a meaningful contribution.
