Episode 26: Projects and artists who raise awareness about important social & cultural issues

In today's episode, I'm talking about five projects or artists that are raising awareness about important social and cultural issues. I believe artists have a unique perspective and hold the power to be able to raise awareness about inequality and bring to light the things we might sometimes ignore.


Today I'm going to talk about:

  1. Illustrators Celebrating Diversity particular an article I read on Deezeen.

  2. Pride Month - the 21 Day Challenge 

  3. Outings Project 

  4. Comic Book Route in Brussels

  5. The Artist - Christo
