Art and protest: the role of the arts and artists in our contemporary world

Can art change the world? Much has been written about the contribution of the arts and artists to the struggle against apartheid.  COVID-19 has laid bare – yet again –  the disparities within our society. What is the role of artists and of the arts in contemporary South Africa? How do the arts perpetuate or challenge social inequalities?
