SYMPOSIUM ON ART & SOCIAL INNOVATION
TORONTO, JUNE 11-12, 2015
Creative Catalyst brings together Canadian artists, designers, researchers, industry, and community members in discussion on how arts and culture catalyzes social innovation.
In the face of "wicked" social problems, radical innovation is required to change perspective and shift culture. Artists and creatives are at the forefront of communicating social change, using artistic expression and creative practice to open up a space for critical reflection, dialogue, and idea generation.
Creative Catalyst features keynotes by Edward Burtynsky (Canadian photographer) in conversation with Sophie Hackett, Judith Marcuse (Founder & Co-Director of the International Centre of Art for Social Change; Ashoka International Senior Fellow), and Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert (Co-Founders, Center for Artistic Activism).
