Steve Lambert is co-founder and co-director of the Center for Artistic Activism, a research and training institute helping activists be more creative and artists be more effective. He has worked alongside over 1400 artists and activists, in 16 countries, on 4 continents helping them use creative means to effect power. Trained in the arts, he is known for large scale, public projects that engage new audiences on difficult topics through the social science of comedy, games, theater, and democratic participation. Lambert’s art work has been shown both nationally and internationally, from art galleries to Times Square to protest marches, featured in four documentary films, and over two dozen books, and collected by museums and The Library of Congress. His research is included in a United Nations report on the impact of advertising on cultural rights, as well as the basis for a book on popular understandings of capitalism. Lambert was a Senior Fellow at New York’s EYEBEAM Center for Art and Technology from 2006-2010, developed and led workshops for Creative Capital Foundation, and is an Assistant Professor at SUNY Purchase. His writing has appeared in multiple anthologies, and his recent book, co-authored by Stephen Duncombe, The Art of Activism: Your All-Purpose Guide to Making the Impossible Possible, was published in 2021. https://visitsteve.com/
