Steve Lambert & Stephen Duncombe with Patricia Sully and Beka Economopoulos
Don’t miss this exciting evening with the cofounders of the Center for Artistic Activism, which has been empowering activists to infuse their campaigns with more creativity and joy, and vice versa, to create sustainable and impactful change in the world. For over a decade Steve Lambert and Stephen Duncombe have worked with the growing community of creative activists who want to effect change, but often do not have the practical skills to implement their visions. Their new book, The Art of Activism: Your All-Purpose Guide to Making the Impossible Possible (OR Books, available November 30) is impetus for this evening’s discussion, for which they’ll be , they will be joined by Seattle creative activists Patricia Sully and Beka Economopoulos. This panel will share stories of personal experiences of infusing more creativity in their activism. There will be time for a Q&A at the end to ask your own questions about projects you are working on.

Here is a useful tool for anyone interested in social change to become well versed in creative problem solving and marshaling the talents of both artists and activists.” —Risë Wilson.
