How can art be used to drive change? What are the possibilities and what is the real impact?
Neni, Franzi and Magdalena were on the trail of this question last autumn. They organised a large-scale flashmob in the Museumsquartier in Vienna to raise awareness for the protection of European waters threatened by a possible weakening of existing water directives.
They were supported by the choreographer Darrel Toulon, who was also a guest on the programme. He has committed himself to bringing about change through dance and drama – not only in the system but also in individuals.
As always, you can listen to what these projects looked like and what our guests have achieved with their projects.
