Founders of the Center for Artistic Activism discuss how an effective campaign for change is structured. We cover goals, objectives, tactics, and strategy and how you can use these concepts in your creative practice and/or collective organizing.

C4AA Fundamentals is a free webinar series is designed to cover the core concepts of artistic activism for people motivated post-election. We don’t have answers, but we can provide some structure to your thinking and planning around how to creatively, and effectively, respond in the weeks to come.

We hope this webinar is useful for you. If so…

Giving Tuesday

Our funding is project based – we propose projects, submit a budget, and then we get funding for those projects. We didn’t budget for a Trump presidency, so your small donations help a great deal. Tuesday is “Giving Tuesday” and we hope you consider the Center for Artistic Activism. If your employer has a matching program, we make a good match. artisticactivism.org/donate

Last, thank you for your interest and enthusiasm. It’s encouraging.
