Suppose you're an artist, theatre producer, graphic designer, photographer or other creative professional who has something to say about politics or society. How do you make it happen? Do you drag your soapbox from the shed and stand in a public place holding a monologue, or are there other ways to go about it?
Including workshops, lectures, a film programme, a heated debate and the presentation of socially engaged work, the Nutshuis looks at activism in art, in cooperation with Movies that Matter, Villanuts, Kunst in de wereld and Nieuwe Garde.
