Department of History of Art


Join us for a three day online event series. This series of online events, Grassroots: Artmaking and Political Struggle, explores relationships between art, activism and political organising in Britain during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Across six panels over three days, speakers will take a number of different approaches to thinking about how art works and visual culture both interrelate with, and have acted as, catalysts for social change. 

There are some excellent speakers and panels throughout the series. You can book a FREE ticket to one day, two days, or all three days. If you’re unable to make every panel, they will be recorded so you can watch them later.

Grassroots is organised by Catherine Spencer (University of St Andrews) and Amy Tobin (Kettle’s Yard/University of Cambridge). It is supported by UKRI/Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Department of History of Art, University of Cambridge.
