Art and Activism

At what point do art and activism intertwine? Is activist/protest art important or overdone? Is art as effective as active protests?

Join your hosts Clare Considine and Aidan Mitchell as they explore these questions and more!

In the first half, they will be speaking with local artist Pigeon, creator of the Mainer project which explored what makes a Mainer. Find more information here: http://www.pigeonnation.com/the-mainer-project/

In the second half, they will be joined by local artist Asher Woodworth, creator of the Tree performance on Congress Street this past October. Find more information here:
