Art as Activism with Rachel Nederveld | Creative Acadiana
Most of us create art because there is something we feel we need to say, a message we want heard. In this workshop we will dive into different ways to thread those messages into your work, including how sometimes just creating the work is activism in itself. We’ll also talk about how this can be used to think of funding avenues and distribution strategies in your work as well.

Her films have premiered at Sundance, TIFF, Tribeca, SXSW, and more and have been supported by Sundance Institute, Ford Foundation, SFFILM, Points North, IDFA, Sheffield Doc, Tribeca Film Institute, and many more. She is a Sundance Producing Fellow and an advisory board member of the Documentary Producers Alliance.
