Steve Lambert has worked alongside artists and activists in 15 countries on 4 continents helping them to effect power. Trained in the arts, he is known for large scale, public projects that engage new audiences on difficult topics through the social science of comedy, games, theater, and democratic participation.
Lambert is the co-founder and co-director of the Center for Artistic Activism, a research and training institute to help activists be more creative and artists to be more effective.
As an artist, Lambert’s work has been shown everywhere from art galleries to protest marches to Times Square, both nationally and internationally, featured in four documentary films, and over two dozen books, and collected by museums and The Library of Congress. Lambert has presented at the United Nations several times. His research is included in a United Nations report on the impact of advertising on cultural rights and the basis of a book on popular understandings of capitalism.
He is Associate Professor of New Media at SUNY Purchase College.
