The International ArtActivistBarbie Flashmob Day

Come and see Central Library transformed into the International ArtActivistBarbie FLASHMOB DAY headquarters. Featuring “ArtActivistBarbie”, an activist who draws attention to inequality and injustice by posing in museums and galleries around the globe. See her work on Twitter @BarbieReports.

The space will live stream “ArtActivistBarbie” in action, as it happens across 72 countries. Everyone can post photographs of their activism on a special Twitter hashtag for the day.

You can also drop in and join the “ArtActivistBarbie” workshops to become an activist for the day. We will take “ArtActivistBarbie” into Manchester’s cultural spaces to pose for pictures, ask questions and make a comment. Feel free to bring your own activist doll along.

Led by an international collective of artists, educators and academics in partnership with NSEAD and InSEA (International Society for Education through Art). By activist Sarah Williamson, University of Huddersfield. With the support of Canadian Connections.
