ASCN Project: Stories Of Now

“Stories of Now” is a project of ArtBridges, a member of the Art for Social Change Network (ASCN), hosted by the International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC). The video was produced by Seanna Connell (ArtBridges), Flick Harrison (Polity) and Aquil Virani.

“The project is about gathering and sharing stories emanating from the field – community-engaged arts & arts for social change – now and about what issues and areas of focus matter,” says Seanna Connell. “The stories will be unique vignettes – and together – a chronicle or snapshot of the field and practice now, at this moment in time.”
