Description

Learn what “artivism” is and become an “artivist” yourself. Daniel Arzola will take you through the steps to create your own artivist poster.

Daniel Arzola is a Venezuelan artist and defender of human rights, known worldwide for popularizing the term “artivism”, art as a form of activism. Daniel created the first viral LGBT campaign against homophobia in Latin America, “No Soy Tu Chiste” (I Am Not a Joke), a series of 50 posters which spread worldwide and was translated into 20 languages. This campaign earned him a special mention in the 2013 Human Rights Award of the Canadian Embassy in Venezuela. He received the 2016 Human Rights Award of the International Queer and Migrant Film Festival in Amsterdam and his work was featured at the 2017 Logo Trailblazer Honors. Daniel has also received recognition from renowned artists such as Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Tittus Burgess. As a result of experiencing a violent attack and death threats in Venezuela, Daniel now lives in Chile.
