Changing Our Worlds: Arts as Transformative Practice

Michelle LeBaron
In this session, participants will explore how and why arts practices can generate transformative change in public spaces and organisations. Inherently participatory, arts enhance belonging. Belonging is one of our earliest impulses; it shapes and is shaped by our relationships. Yet not everyone belongs equally. This workshop connects art-making to social justice, drawing on Michelle’s work as an international mediation and reconciliation practitioner.
