The Center for Artistic Activism is the home for artists, activists and scholars to explore, discuss, reflect upon, and strengthen connections between social activism and artistic practice. CAA facilitates projects and strengthen networks. CAA’s goal is to make more creative and more effective citizen activists by adhering to the following principles:
There is an art to activism.
Activism is too often flat and colorless…and it doesn’t need to be.
An aesthetic eye and a creative hand are essential for building a better world.
Everyone has an artistic life they can bring to their activism.
Cultural transformation is necessary for lasting change.
Belief in Utopia, not as a destination but as a direction.
