Think about what art does.
Evoke feelings? Accomplish a challenge? What about start a movement? Give a voice? Combat oppression? Raise awareness? What about igniting social or environmental change? Be the very thing that makes a positive change?
Do you think art can do that?
We want to explore that question with you, with an event in partnership with MakeSense, KissKissBankBank and Paris College of Art to bring us together and see the potential art has. What art can do.
This will be the first instalment of a series of events debating «What Art Can Do...»- a new platform for dialogue, networking and inspiration around art and its power to spark change.
We want to invite you into experiencing for yourself, together, with friends, with students, with teachers, with thinkers, with doers, with us, with the community, what art can do. And maybe have a beer or two in between.
