Free ICNC webinar on creative cultural resistance

    Tomorrow, Nadine Bloch, a wonderful artist and nonviolent practitioner and facilitator, will be leading a webinar, hosted by ICNC, entitled “The Arts of Protest: Creative Cultural Resistance.” According to the announcement:

    Some of the most impactful and memorable moments from civil resistance and nonviolent movements are sung by the masses, printed by the thousands, enacted through craft, painted in vivid color, or performed in traditional dress. This webinar will take a critical look at Creative Cultural Resistance: the broad use of arts, literature, and traditional practices in the service of protest and political and social actions.

    […]

    Through compelling examples this talk will cover the immense diversity of methodologies that have been employed in resistance, from 2-D and 3-D arts, to sound/music and theater/movement arts. From literature and crafts, to documentation and delineation of space, as well as rituals and language preservation, we will look at the power of cultural work in organizing, mobilizing and grounding actions.

    I had the opportunity to get to know Nadine and participate in a small group session with her last year at the Fletcher Summer Institute and can vouch for the fact that she is a lot of fun and really knows from experience what she’s talking about.

    The webinar will run from 12-1pm EDT. To reserve your place, click here. And if that time doesn’t work for you, ICNC will post the video of the presentation on their website afterward.
