This interactive workshop open to adults and older children and led by visual artist Sophia Dawson, will introduce people to political prisoners, and explore the questions: what makes someone a political prisoner? Who are some of the U.S. held political prisoners? How can we support them? How can we use visual art to share their story?
Art & Activism at Millpond.Live
The Rosenberg Fund for Children is the presenting sponsor for "Art & Activism," the Millpond.Live festival's August 26th installment at 6:00 pm in Easthampton's Millside Park.
This multimedia workshop led by Rebel Diaz will focus on the historical and current connections between community activism and Hip Hop culture. By looking at historical examples of community organizing through Hip-Hop, as well as music, videos, and pictures, we will explore the notion of community self-determination inherent in Hip-Hop, and how this essence can be reclaimed in the context of today’s corporate rap music industry.
