Alli Starr, Arts and Media Director for the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, has been innovating ways of using art as a tool for human rights — and using the human rights movement as an inspiration for beautiful art — for more than ten years. Alli is a founder of the Art in Action Youth Leadership Program, Dancers Without Borders, Another World is Possible Road Shows, and the Radical Performance Fest. She helped found Art and Revolution, a national movement of artist-activists that worked to revitalize social movements from 1996-2001. She has published several essays for Democratizing the Global Economy, Global Uprising, Voices from the WTO, The Political Edge, and How to Stop the Next War Now.
Modeled after one of the most popular courses ever taught at Harvard, Activist Lives is a course open to the public will bring some of the most original and successful activists of our day into conversation with students and others to explore how an engaged, compassionate, transformative life is possible.
