Born of the burgeoning feminist movement of the late 60s and early 70s, "the personal is the political" is still a useful framework for examining today's creative activism. From this perspective, this panel will explore activist art collectives questioning of dominant cultural representations and configurations of power, seeking to empower individuals and communities and ultimately to stimulate social change.
