Continuum of Impact: Action Part 2

In our next Action video, we focus on the work of FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture. Hannah Brancato describes how FORCE has used large media campaigns to draw in large audiences and get them engaged on the topic of rape culture. By using very public and internet based media they have been able to motivate many more people to participate in fighting rape culture then using other methods may have allowed.

Continuum of Impact: Attitudes

Changing the way people feel about an issue is a difficult task to undertake but art can be a helpful medium to do so. Using art, organizers and activists can generate feelings of hope, pride, and respect in both those who engage  in the creation of art and those who view or experience it. Our Attitudes video highlights the work of DewMore Baltimore and 901 Arts who use art to change people’s thought’s and attitudes towards specific issues. Devlon Waddell from DewMore Baltimore describes how they use literary arts to encourage individuals to explore their understanding of themselves to then develop a stronger connection with their community.
