WHAT: Art Killing Apathy is Creative Activism. Creative Activism is outreach and change through the mediums that appeal to all people and all of people – their emotions, conscience and intellect, in that order. It places itself at the intersection of pop culture and politics, bringing the two together. Why is this so important? Well, because art has the unique ability to affect change by changing the people it affects. And any change, social, political, economical – must begin in a personal change, an individual change, an awakening, if you will. Art is that catalyst as well as the powerful and passionate expression of those who are already fighting for change.
There’s so much more I could write here and although brevity is my nemesis, I will leave this “what” at that. As you may have already seen, this site has a lot going on and you’re welcome to peruse it all or focus on something in particular. Outside of the on-site content, there are also links to my music and my TV show. I am available for Speak & Engage-ments (more on that if you click here), or as a consultant and/or collaborator on projects, events and campaigns (see what I’ve worked on here).
WHO: Me: Eleanor Goldfield and my network of incredible creative and grassroots activists. Think everything from gardeners to directors, comedians to painters, poets to dancers.
HOW: Well, that’s a collaborative effort. Whether it’s a project that I spearhead like a creative activism event, I bring in the aforementioned awesome activists to make it happen. The details are exactly that but in the fight for lasting and positive system change, no one works alone.
WHY: That’s easy. Because we have to. We quite literally don’t have time to waste – our climate is irrevocably changed and will continue to change all the more drastically the longer we wait. Our systems are based on infinite growth for the few at the expense of the many. We are that many and our issues are all the same issue: people and planet over profit. Whether that manifests itself in feminism or anti-fracking makes no difference. We the people have to rise up. We are the answer and creativity is how we can manifest that answer.
WHEN: Now. Get in touch. See you on the front lines.
