Art and Activism

This guide supports further research into the history of art and activism, as well as some practical solutions for working artists.

Art & Design-related Activist Projects

We put together this list of art and design-related activist projects that MICA students can get involved in, support, or be inspired by. Organizations marked with an *asterisk may not seem arts-focused but have a demonstrated history of working with artists and therefore offer the potential for future collaboration.

We see this as a living document and welcome edits! Please feel free to add organizations, restructure sections, or comment with suggestions.
