How do we make social justice the most pleasurable human experience?
Can a party be a protest? Should protests be like parties? What can one learn from the other? This participatory session explores the legacy of countercultures and social movements from the 60s to today, with a focus on the current activism renaissance and the ways in which art and protest are inseparable bedfellows.
From militarism to climate change, from race and gender to sex and drugs, we will explode the grim myth that changing the world is just another form of work. Instead we’ll dive into how politics can feel good and how that which feels good always has a complex politics of its own.
