Elysium gallery in partnership with Swansea Museum, Swansea County Council and Fusion presents ‘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 by Welsh and International artists will be accompanied by archival artefacts from the vast Swansea Museum collection as well as memorabilia, photographs, interviews, and artworks provided by members of the public and protest groups from Swansea and Wales.
This exhibition is part of the ChangeMakers Festival Programme exploring activism and social change through, exhibitions, workshops, heritage, words, visual and digital art. The festival is a celebration of people, movements and organisations who have fought for social equality in Swansea and the wider world.
Over the coming months ChangeMakers will share some of the stories and experiences of people who have felt compelled to make our community a fairer and more equal place for everyone.
