Shake! has been featured alongside other arts/ activism projects in Lucy Neal’s new book: Playing for Time: Making Art as if the World Mattered.
We get a mention in the Activism chapter alongside UK Uncut, Fracking campaigns and others. Our couple of pages features poetry from Orla, quotes from Zareen, a write up from Farzana and a pic of Mujtaba in dynamic poetry mode.
Here’s more info on the book from the CAT blog with liberal sprinkles of Shake! buzz words such as #NewNarratives #Reimagining:
A groundbreaking handbook for artists, community activists and anyone wishing to reach beyond the facts and figures of science and technology to harness their creativity to make change in the world. This timely book explores the pivotal role artists play in re-thinking the future; re-inventing and re-imagining our world at a time of systemic change and uncertainty. Playing for Time identifies collaborative arts practices emerging in response to planetary challenges, reclaiming a traditional role for artists in the community as truth-tellers and agents of change.
“Don’t let anyone tell you that art can’t change the world because it can and it always has.”
Artist activist, John Jordan
