The OfferArt, Activism and Ecocide
International criminal law (ICL) involves the most serious crimes of concern to the global community.  The “core” crimes are genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
“It has been proposed that ecocide, the environmental equivalent of genocide, becomes the 5th International Crime Against Peace alongside Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, Crimes of Aggression and War Crimes. Under the proposed new law, Heads of States and Directors of Corporations will be required to take individual and personal responsibility for their actions.”  Eradicating Ecocide, Polly Higgins 2011

This session of The Offer asks what role do the arts and culture have in making the Crime of Ecocide an international law?

Join the Activist Museum Award winners for an online discussion exploring our experiences of being activists working in museums. What challenges arise, what changes have you made happen, and what tensions arise in facing intersecting issues? Often we are fighting the same battles under different banners, so how can activists work together on common aims? Speakers include:

Carrie Supple from the Journey to Justice travelling civil rights exhibition
Michelle McGrath from Museum as Muck
Bridget McKenzie from Climate Museum UK
