Social Justice refers to the equity of chances and is the prerequisite for peace, prosperity and cultural blossoming. In our troubled times, it has become a shared responsibility and has long gone beyond merely classic ‘social’ projects. For artists and cultural players, creating an impact on social justice through their
projects is not only an attitude, but a strategic challenge. In this talk, Leonie will explore mechanisms and tools to help integrate social justice features into arts and culture projects from different disciplines.
