Panel #4: How to build an anti-authoritarian culture?



In this session we explore how artists in different artisitc disciplines are responding to the rise of authoritarian movements through hackticism, culturehacking, theatre and other art forms. The purpose of the session is to discover what creative approaches current and past art practitioners use. As well as to reflect on what approaches we can take with us into our own everyday lives and work.
