Arts as Resistance - Popular Culture & Social Injustice


For the third edition of the symposium Arts as Resistance Humanity in Action the Netherlands organizes together with H401 the event Popular Culture and Social Injustice.

What is the characteristic of contemporary pop culture in 2019? Do artists with a large platform have to express themselves on social issues? And if they don’t, are they “canceled”? What role does social media activism play in this interaction? How does popular culture create a connection in order to counteract polarisation between groups in society?

During this edition, culture experts will engage in a dialogue with the public about the impact of popular culture on social issues and vice versa.
