The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.

Are you an educator, youth/ community worker, artist, activist, advocate, changemaker looking for a new inspiration?

Our masterclass series 2021 will focus on generating “AWEsome solutions” and presenting them to the public in the form of street art on our National Paste-Up Blitz on May 22nd.

The awesome solution concept is based on data collected at the COP21 conference about the impact of art on audience engagement and perceptions of the world's big problems.
They found that
*Artwork that presents an awesome solution to a problem was the most effective at engaging the audience and inspiring them to change their attitudes to take action on a local or global justice issue

Exploring development education topics and global and social justice means covering complex issues, discussing interconnected systemic BIG world problems, things that often feel outside of our control can be overwhelming.

How can we use the arts to inspire hope, to nurture that longing for the brighter future we all know is possible and engage our communities in action?

The workshop series offers a deep dive into the idea of the awesome solution, exploring the concept across a range of disciplines, methodologies, and facilitators, bringing you through a range of processes that can be adapted and integrated into your own work.

Create meaningful spaces online to engage groups in awesome solution based projects that can go on to inspire others to take action for change.

Work with the Creativity and Change team, learn the skills to tap into the creative potential of societies, be culturally engaging, and contribute to imagining a new and better future for humankind.
