For many years, arts-activists and community artists have used the arts as tools for social and individual change. They have drawn on poetry, painting, theatre and other art forms for social activism, political commentary, individual expression and therapy. In recent decades, increasing numbers of social scientists have also begun to draw on the arts to help them understand society. This talk will explore how such ‘arts-based research’ can change not only how we represent the world, but also how we think about and act in the world.
Speaker: Helen Johnson, University of Brighton
