At the beginning of a new year, join our next Arctivism Conversation - a discussion on how we can think of and practise care anew.

The pandemic crisis has painfully brought to the fore the ‘care gap’ or ‘care crisis’ long debated by feminist thinkers. From calls to value and reward care and ‘essential’ work, to the effort to find new ways to heal ourselves, each other and the planet, the ethics of care have (re)emerged at the heart of visions for societal transformation.

Throughout 2020-21 the Arctivism project from the Human Rights Defender Hub at the University of York supported collaborations of activists and artists across the world responding to the outbreak of Covid-19 and its implications for human rights defenders, activism, and shrinking civic and political space.

Through film, music, spoken word poetry, story-telling, zines, theatre, drag performance, murals, painting and sculpture 39 projects from 23 countries addressed socio-economic inequalities, the challenges faced by women and Indigenous peoples, and the threats posed by populism.
