This series of online events explores the relationship between art, activism and political organising in Britain during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Across six panels over a three day period, speakers will take a number of different approaches to thinking about how artwork and visual culture relate to and have acted as catalysts for social change.

The events will explore how artists have created alternative infrastructures, intervened in state organisations, worked together collaboratively, engaged with labour and activist struggles, as well as established channels of production, circulation and distribution.

Using feminist, decolonial and queer theoretical approaches, the speakers address how intersections between art making and political struggle in Britain during these decades transformed culture in ways that continue to resonate today.
