Street Art & Political Protest
Although most don’t think of it, protest is a creative process. To protest, not only allows individulas to more directly express their demands to governments, it also enables them to choose how to express their grievances. It is in this respect, the How, that I find protests to be a source of endless creativity for the expression of social and political thought.
Beyond my more quantitative focus on the sudy of protest, I am an enthusiast of street art centered around political protest. A picture is worth a thousand words -goes the saying, and I have learned much about the political history of the places I have visited through their art.
