Transformation through art

WHAT is the relationship between arts in the broadest sense, and change in the broadest sense (social, personal, cultural, political and economic)?

That was the issue in discussion at St John's Church, Edinburgh, when five practitioners led a lively and engaged conversation as part of Just Festival 2013 - which is in itself a major showcase of music, performance, workshops, the visual arts, dialogue, and much more.

The panel began by introducing the work of their own organisations, and then raising themes and issues picked up by the audience (a very participatory one) in ongoing discussion.

(The picture is from the Flamenco flashmob that launched Just Festival at the beginning of the month, by the way.)
