What Is Art for Social Change?

According to the website [http://www.artforsocialchange.net/home.html], art for social change is

A belief in cultural and creative expression as a means to affect deep and lasting social change.
Through art, we can challenge many of our society's deepest assumptions, built upon the power of artistic creation and expression to:
• spark new ideas
• catalyze critical thinking
• elicit new actions
• inspire individuals
• and create visions
Art becomes a political act, a conscious effort to facilitate and participate in social change. If we want respect, love and beauty among us and others, we must actively promote it through our art.
