Art vs Alt: How We Challenge the Right

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 10:00
Art vs Alt

Art vs Alt is a day of conversations and a platform for presentations of work by concerned artists, a day to come together to work out how to collectively confront the dramatic rise of the right.

Culture has always been a major part of left currency and in the present crisis it may be our most important currency. Let’s move it forward. Let’s ask what we should be doing.

The conference is open to anyone interested in the culture and politics of the left. Discussions and plenaries on subjects chosen by participants will be held throughout the day. Artists are also invited to give a 3-minute presentation of their work during four half-hour segments scheduled throughout the afternoon. Come and participate in the presentations and the conversation.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
