Skip to 0 minutes and 30 seconds IAIN MACKENZIE: What is the link between art and activism? In particular, what is the link between what we want to call creative practices and practices of resistance? Is there always in some sense a creative element to an effective practice of resistance? These particular questions raise broader and more general questions I would also like to address as part of this course. I suppose at the most fundamental level, what is the nature of resistance itself? What do you think resistance means for you?

Skip to 1 minute and 51 seconds IAIN MACKENZIE: This really is a great opportunity to explore what resistance means for you, but also to take that individual sense of resistance and bring it together into a truly collaborative artwork. Please join us. Join us on this journey into the relationship between politics, art, and resistance. Join us in thinking through the links between art and activism. Register, take part, contribute, and together, we can resist.
