How is social change fought for and won?

 

We just finished two excellent events at the V&A - REVOLUTIONS, RECORDS & REBELS conference and the #FIGHTFORCHANGE round-table event. These events allowed us to bring together activists, artists and journalists working today with activists, writers and artists who have fought for social justice over the past five decades,  in order to better understand the realities of campaigning today and how this has altered over time. Featuring exclusive recorded interviews with such prominent figures as Noam Chomsky, Kathleen Cleaver, Erin Pizzey, Red Saunders and many more, these events offered a unique opportunity to tackle some of the underlying issues around social change and social justice.

If you haven't seen the V&A exhibition You Say You Want A Revolution, check it out.
