The Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Raritan Valley Community College invites you to ARTIVISM, which illustrates how the arts are used as a mechanism for preventing and responding to mass violence. ARTIVISM introduces the personal, emotional, and historical realities of mass atrocities, inviting attendees to learn about the essential role played by the arts as a grassroots tool for social transformation and a deterrent to systematic violence. It showcases the works of six artists and activist collectives from across the globe:

  • Rebin Chalak Ismael from Iraq,
  • Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission,
  • Elisabeth Ida Mulyani from Indonesia,
  • the South African Intuthuko Embroidery Project,
  • the Argentinian Grupo de Arte Callejero (GAC), and
  • Aida Šehović from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This exhibit is coordinated through The Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation which is the largest nongovernmental organization in the world for the training of public officials in genocide and mass atrocity prevention.
