Disobey: Art as Activism in a Time of Turmoil
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless and corrupt (Mahatma Gandhi). Does art have the power to generate social and political change? Its a question that has been discussed endlessly over the centuries, but seems especially timely in the past few years. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe exists because of an act of protest in 1947. Join us as we explore the role of the artist in changing the world.
