Creating social change must be integral to the ideas, beliefs, and goals that are woven throughout your art and your process of creating and sharing your art.

Art for social change is art with a vision and an intentional analysis. It is an artistic or creative cultural practice that may operate in traditional or nontraditional mediums, modes, or disciplines. Art with a vision impacts people in many ways. It can:

Raise consciousness.
Alter how they think about themselves, their society, or their culture.
Create a vision of a more just world.
Be a tool or strategy for organizing and movement building.
Preserve or reclaim traditional cultural practices using your artistic practice as a form of resistance or empowerment
Create space for expression and build a sense of community.
Challenge racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, or other oppressions.
Question mainstream culture and beliefs.
Shift or transform the perception of power and/or privilege and the dynamics associated with justice, equality, and/or accountability.
Value healing justice practices focused on strengthening communities, not just individuals.
Engage and utilize a reciprocal process — where there is teaching and learning simultaneously and the consent for engagement is mutual, as is the benefit for yourself as an artist and the community you are engaging.
