When no amount of cultural escapism can distract us from the reality of climate collapse, can both art and activism offer us a space to build alternative tomorrows to strive for? In this panel discussion, hosted by TWT’s media partner Radical Art Review, they will talk to artists and activists about the intersection of art and activism, greenwashing and effective collective action. The panel will include activists from BP Or Not BP as well as WTF WWF plus artist Georgia Preece whose practice focuses on environmental issues.
Bayryam Mustafa Bayryamali is a visual researcher and an art activist based in London. As a member of the protest group BP or not BP?, he campaigns for reparations of looted objects and end of oil sponsorships in cultural institutions.
