Virtual Author Event at Greenlight Bookstore

Steve Lambert & Stephen Duncombe, with Marlène Ramírez-Cancio

VIRTUAL: Live via Zoom
Thursday, February 3, 7:30 PM ET
Steve Lambert and Stephen Duncombe present The Art of Activism: Your All-Purpose Guide to Making the Impossible Possible
In conversation with Marlène Ramírez-Cancio
Greenlight Bookstore, Brooklyn NY

Join the co-founders of the Center for Artistic Activism, Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert, as they discuss their new book The Art of Activism, an all-purpose guide that falls somewhere between Che Guevara’s Principles for Guerrilla Warfare and Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. Duncombe and Lambert show readers how to bring about effective social change by combining the emotional power of the arts with the strategic planning of activism. The Art of Activism brings together the authors’ extensive practical knowledge—gleaned from over a decade’s experience training activists around the world—with theoretical insights from fields as far-ranging as cultural studies and cognitive science. From the United Farm Workers’ boycott movement in sixties’ California to a canal-side beach in present-day Saint Petersburg, these pages are packed with contemporary and historical case studies in artistic activism that have been shown to work in practice—no prior experience required!

Lambert and Duncombe are joined in conversation by Marlène Ramírez-Cancio—artist, educator, and founder of EMERGENYC, an incubator for emerging artist-activists—for a dynamic conversation about creativity, social change, and the political power of the imagination.
