In this week’s episode of Act Out!, Eleanor talks clowns, burning cars and the riots against austerity in Europe. Carol Wells, activist and founder of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, joins the show to talk about the role of art in activism and her work collecting, preserving and displaying over 80,000 protest posters. Climate change deniers and their dark money sugar daddies earn the Low Life Scum award of the week, but don’t despair! Activism is how we can save the planet and Eleanor gives you some tools to get started, from tweets to marching in the streets, this is Act Out!
