INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ARS-UM23 “Art as a Reflection of Society: Role of Art in Shaping Culture and Sparking Social Change”
2nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
5-6 December 2023. Podgorica
Montenegrin (Serb/BH/Cro) English & Italian language/hybrid: live and online
Art has always reflected the cultural, political, and social reality of the time in which it was created. Whether it captures the struggles of marginalized communities, exposes social injustices, or highlights political unrest, art becomes a mirror through which society can reflect and face its challenges. Throughout history, artistic movements have challenged conventional notions, provoking new perspectives and inviting dialogue, thereby serving as a catalyst for social change, pushing boundaries, and questioning social norms. By presenting alternative narratives and challenging deeply held beliefs, art has always inspired individuals to question existing systems and advocate for a fairer and more just society. Given that art overcomes cultural and language barriers, encourages understanding and empathy between different communities, and serves as a universal language, this international conference will bring together a large number of local and foreign artists, researchers, experts, and specialists in order to create a space for shared experiences, different perspectives, nurturing tolerance, acceptance, and appreciation of diversity.
- The influence of Art on shaping today’s society: Art as a vehicle for social change
