Artivism


//Kabbo Hue trusts’ in the principles of Artivist Storytelling as a powerful and transformative medium that combines the elements of art and activism, telling stories that convey narratives challenges, informs, motivates and has the potential to incite change.

It is a creative form of expression that merges the artist’s passion for their craft with a deep commitment to social justice, equality and human rights. Through their storytelling, artivists harness the emotive and evocative power of art to engage audiences, provoke critical thinking, and mobilize communities towards collective action.

Furthermore, artivist storytelling can inspire and potentially mobilise social movements. By evoking strong emotional responses and engaging the imagination, art captivates and motivates individuals to take action. It has the potential to galvanise communities, spark conversations, organise protests, and mobilise resources towards social change. Artistic expressions such as protest songs, murals, performance art, and spoken word poetry have historically played a central role in social movements, uniting people under a common cause and providing a powerful vehicle for dissent and resistance.

At its core, artivist storytelling defies conventional boundaries and provides a platform for marginalised voices to be heard. It amplifies the experiences, struggles, and triumphs of marginalised communities, shedding light on social injustices, systemic oppression, and the complexities of the human condition.

Through their art, artivists expose hidden truths, interrogate power structures, and confront uncomfortable realities. We must expose the injustices perpetuated by dominant systems and institutions, giving voice to the voiceless and shedding light on marginalised narratives that have been historically silenced.

In conclusion, artivist storytelling is a potent force for social change. It merges the realms of art and activism, harnessing the transformative power of storytelling to challenge dominant narratives, provoke critical thinking, and mobilise communities towards justice and equity. Through our creativity, passion, and unwavering commitment to social justice, artivists reshape our collective imagination, inviting us to envision and strive for a better world.
