On art and activism – Artivists – Films to change the world

Artivists.org – “Merging Art and Activism for Global Consciousness”

Artivist honors filmmakers from around the world whose work addresses the importance of art and activism in our global community. (Thanks to my son for bringing this to my attention through a post from www.worldchanging.com)

On Salt Spring Island, we have our own Film Festival as well. This year it will be held the weekend of March 2, 3 & 4, 2007. See the website at www.saltspringmediagroup.com. Of course I have a special interest in this as we also do documentary filmmaking.

I just heard the other day about a new educational institute that is starting up for Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands which “aims to link art and survival through interdisciplinary approaches and to foster creative solutions to environmental and social problems”. You can read more about it at Islands Institute.

Changing the world through art of many kinds….things to touch the heart and bring positive changes to our world….anyone else with stories of art to change the world?
