Laura Dawn: Bringing the Art into Politics

November 5, 2014 Written by overshareshow - No Comments

In this week’s OverShare Show we interview political activist and musician Laura Dawn. She toured the world singing with Moby, has been the Cultural Director for MoveOn.org since March 2004, and is now currently the chief creative director for Art Not War. Laura’s prevailing optimism about political participation is hard not to get swept away by – like those brooms in Fantasia. Even my semi nihilistic world view was soothed by her vast intelligence and pragmatic approach to activism. She is a creative soul who still wants a legacy of impact, and her imaginative mind has birthed countless campaigns to seduce people into giving a care.
