We have taken part in exhibitions, festivals, and run workshops, talks and debates for children and adults alike. These have ranged from local events in organic shops and restaurants, to international art events.
Below are some examples of our past events. We have more in the works – watch this space.
In 2019 and 2020, we participated in the annual week-long Tate Exchange event at the Tate Modern in collaboration with the Digital Maker Collective alongside multiple other partners. It brought together tech activists, experts, students, university staff, creatives and the public to explore ideas for making society a better, fairer place.
Venice Biennale 2019 as part of the ARTIVISM pavilion
In collaboration with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation. The event explored the creative responses of artists and artistically minded activists to the most precarious of situations: large-scale identity-based violence and mass atrocities.
More than merely showing the way others have used the arts to foment positive change, Artivism also provided concrete steps for visitors themselves to take action, highlighting their own power to play a role in mass atrocity prevention at home and around the world.
Toxics; Art Exhibition and Talks
To highlight the impact of toxic exposure on children, we exhibited artwork on the issue at The Three Stags in London in November 2018, an event which featured a discussion with the UN’s top expert on human rights and toxics, Baskut Tuncak. Using facts as the inspiration to get us to confront the fundamentals of toxics, the artworks are a wake-up call about the hazards, our vulnerabilities, and what needs to change.
As part of our effort to reach different audiences with our ideas, research, and artwork, we have taken part in a number of mural projects in public spaces in London, Palestine and Washington DC. These were done with the intention of collaborating with other artists, activists and children, but also to bring our work to street level in an effort to democratise human rights as a responsibility that everyone shares.
