“Artivists for Social Change” is a group of local art-activists who create art that speaks to the soul to educate, inspire, and transform societal divisiveness into re-connection, with a view to a more uplifting future for all.
OUR BASIC STYLE:
- Members: We are a loosely connected leaderless team of painters, poets, potters, playwrights, sculptors, fabric artists & more!
- Modes of display: possibilities include local art shows, pop-up installations, local churches, libraries, businesses and schools. Also partnering with established local art organizations like: Exeter Arts Committee , TEAM , Up Front Arts Studio , and other local art studios and call for artists. In addition, partnering to artfully support organizations like 350NH, Exeter NH Transition Town, Women’s March, Black Lives Matter, and others.
- For inspiration we occasionally convene creative & introspective small group gatherings: Artists Way book/study group; Collage/visioning creation with professionals; Day long art/spiritual retreat at yurt; “Artist in Residence” grants.
ISSUES: (global & local, around which we organize our work)
- Women & Families
