Finissage autour de l’artivisme

Finissage autour de l’artivisme

We mark the close of En attendant by Tomi Ungerer, agent provocateur and ‘artiste engagé’, with an evening of music, installations, short films and TED-style talks on the subject of activism and social engagement within the arts. Academics and artists have been invited to CCI for a mini-residency in early July to discuss ideas around artivism - this evening is the culmination of their creative gathering… Expect the unexpected! as Tomi would say.
