  1. If you want to change things you do it with people not to people.
  2. Ongoing revolution.
  3. To service the greater good with activist art (like all forms of expression) should be regarded according to review, peer assessment, research and budget in order to gauge it’s effectiveness in society.
  4. A crucial shift in thinking is to involve people for their abilities, what they can do, rather than build up an attitude that only aesthetic or technically sound work should be the focus or at the forefront of the revolution in an ideological sense. Artistic merit should be judged according to a clear communication of a relevant, centralised and communal message, no matter the art form or level of artistic development.
  5. Activist art is concerned with cultural and ideological democracy and the right of all to have access to services.
  6. Equal rights for one should not come at the cost of another’s rights.
  7. Activist art is concerned with promoting a community that encourages ideas and the community leaders who have the courage to put them forward. A community that takes pride in the way we treat and include those that need our help.
  8. Inclusion.
  9. Apart from enjoying the right to create art for its own sake, activists are often drawn to art.
  10. Activist Artists are concerned with highlighting technocratic decision making processes… behind closed doors based on limited information and without initial intention to consult those whom the decision most affected.
  11. Rather than fearing our differences, we wish to be a people who celebrate it
  12. It is through the testing of ideas, through endless argument and negotiation that a community retains it’s vitality and survives.
  13. Let our debates be based on mutual respect and the denial of violence.

Recognising diversity can give birth to creativity as much as conflict.

YET… We do not seek to be a society that fears rigorous debate.
