How the Arts Can Change the World (Again)

6pm on 18 July at The Bevy Community Pub

Speaker: Helen Johnson, University of Brighton

For many years, arts-activists and community artists have used the arts as tools for social and individual change. They have drawn on poetry, painting, theatre and other art forms for social activism, political commentary, individual expression and therapy. In recent decades, increasing numbers of social scientists have also begun to draw on the arts to help them understand society. This talk will explore how such ‘arts-based research’ can change not only how we represent the world, but also how we think about and act in the world.

Brains at the Bevy talks are a series of short and enlightening talks from local academics organised by The University of Brighton CUPP programme and hosted by the Bevy Community Pub
