Positive Action: How arts and culture can spark change and combat stigma.
Exploring the role of ‘artivism’ in the HIV community, our Positive Action team hosted a live panel at this year’s AIDS 2020 Virtual titled, How Arts and Culture can Spark Change and Combat Stigma. An expert panel of individuals discuss the use of art and culture to start conversations, create connections, build resilience and help shift public consciousness on HIV in their communities.
“I have worked in HIV for years now and we are always pushing for more storytelling narrative. Sometimes people do not understand the importance of storytelling narratives and how they help with testing, prevention, treatment, care and everything we are trying to combat.”
