The Art of Progress: A Discussion on Art and Social Change

ArtQuake is a Vancouver-based youth-led movement that is using art to shake up the roots of democracy, and Reel Causes is thrilled to support them with a special advanced screening of Pirates of Salé. Filmed in Morocco’s seaside city of Salé, on the edge of the poorest slums, the documentary follows the transformation of four young cirque performers training for the opening of the country’s first professional circus. After the film, ArtQuake will host a discussion that will get us thinking critically about the idea of art as social action.
