A Centre for Everything presents an artist led symposium on contemporary art and politics.
At this critical juncture in history, artists work to not only reflect and comment, but also to shape the way in which we deal with humanitarian and environmental crises.
ART/POLITICS/ACTION is an artist-led symposium on the intersection between contemporary art and politics. Join special guests, artists and activists Mel Evans (Platform London, Liberate Tate and author of Artwash: Big Oil and the Arts) and Beka Economopoulos (founder of Not an Alternative and The Natural History Museum) alongside leading Australian artist-activists for day-long intensives and keynote presentations. Participants will contribute to outcome-driven workshops focusing on critical analysis, collective actions and creative interventions.
This free event will be presented from 11 April to 19 May 2017 as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE – a festival of art exhibitions and events seeking to harness the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

Intensive for Artists
The Artist Intensive will see a core group of artists undertake workshops, discussions, case studies and shared meals, examining and collectivising around the various ways in which money, environment, culture and ethics collide. Artist Intensive workshops are open to practicing artists and arts workers from all fields with an interest in politically-engaged practice.
