Varoom 38 The Activism Issue

  • Cat Sims
  • Derek Brazell
The Activism issue of Varoom reports on the innovative ways that illustrators today are using their work to effect social and political change around the world.
With their ability to clarify the complex, manifest the hidden and lampoon the powerful, illustrators are essential practitioners in this age of distorted truths and commercial homogenisation. As more people visibly adopt positions on political and social issues, the championing of causes has become a cultural currency, adopted by brands and corporate interests.
Varoom 38 presents creative practitioners using their work to challenge, provoke and advocate on issues from the personal to the local and global.
