About

Aktivism with a ‘K’ interventions are to utilize popular forms of entertainment as means for political engagement. Special attention is paid to strategies to encourage participation in audience members. In a society where we are often identified as being part of a predefined social group of culture, class and political beliefs, Activism with a ‘K’ is a way to offer a shared space of exchange. Events of activism too often only attract participants from a limited demographic. My concern is that this can lead to isolation, by demanding certain behaviours from those within this social group and by limiting the participation of those citizens who believe the activism is “not for them”. Aktivism with a ‘K’ doesn’t concern itself with politics with a capital ‘P’, it rather offers a playful space for people to think differently about the actions they perform on a regular basis.
