Art is multifaceted, both in its forms of expression and in what it conveys. Art showcases, processes and triggers emotions, while also discussing societal and political issues. On a panel at the ausARTen Festival 2023, the intersections of artistic activity, political activism and mental health will be addressed. The panel guests will explore these connections from different perspectives and compare practical experiences and theory.
