“The purpose of ARTIVISM is to communicate through any possible form of artistic expression such as video, street art, posters, installations, performances, some critical attitudes that contemporary Albanian artists have for the perception of community members on the environments where they live, in order to turn them into actors of exerting civic pressure on local authorities. ARTIVISM aims to use art as a genuine tool of political protest, without doing politics, to bring about a radical socio-cultural change that goes in the direction of the wishes and expectations of the community.
