This chapter is an introduction, deconstruction, and dissection of artivism and its manifestations, purpose, and social value. It begins with the acknowledgment of artists’ role as storytellers, archiving people’s collective histories. It also references the disconnect of art in purposely seeking societal change. Recognizing the need for abstract, personal, form-driven, and curiosity-driven art, the chapter argues for the universal application of artivism to the work of art makers. It iterates the symbiotic relationship between art and activism, its history, and what that looks like now. The chapter uses these key sites of investigation in hopes of bridging the links between theory and practice. It elaborates on art makers as agents of social change, the role of art for social good, and the juxtaposition of personal and political art. Additionally, it proposes the radicalization of arts-based education as a way of introducing artivism to emerging artists.
