Athletes and Social Change: Creative Expression: Art, Athletics, and Activism

How does creative expression influence the athletes and social change movement? What are athletes, advocates, and leaders doing to utilize creative expression—such as photography, music, film, short stories, poetry, drawing/painting, and sculpture—to raise their voices for human rights in sport and in society. How can creative expression change the narrative to bring more awareness to athlete activism and social change?

Join the Muhammad Ali Center for the 2022 “Athletes and Social Change Forum” this July 14-15 as we explore the intersections of art, athletics, and activism.
