Art, Social Change & You:

Best Practices and Resources to bring creativity into your organization.


From Shepard Fairey’s “HOPE” poster for the Obama campaign, to Donald Trump’s red MAGA hat, art & graphic design are one of, if not the most, powerful fuel for social change. And yet, all too often movement groups see art as extracurricular, as less than core to the mission, and rarely invest the time & energy in structuring creativity into their work. This session will feature best practices, tips, and tricks, from the Co-founders of Creative Action Network, on how you can win with art.
