EOP member Dawn Woolley has been working with Elysium gallery in partnership with Swansea Museum and Fusion to present ‘Ways of Protest’, an extensive exhibition looking at how the arts can be used as a vehicle for protest, and how activism and a desire for social change can drive individual and collective creativity.
Contemporary artworks will be accompanied by archival artefacts from the vast Swansea Museum collection as well as memorabilia, photographs, interviews, and artworks provided by over 100+ individuals and organisations from Swansea and Wales. In Ways of Protest ‘Trickle Around Economics’ and ‘Race Class Gender’ are presented as protest placards. Additionally, ‘Denial Death Cult’ a large scale illustration of our suicidal dependence on fossil fuels.
Ways of Protest is a part of the Swansea Change Makers festival, a celebration of people, movements and organisations who have fought for social equality in Swansea and the wider world.
