Shakthi Sivanathan puts forward his perspective on the question of whether or not art can change our feelings towards refugees, and makes a few controversial comments along the way!
Shakthi Sivanathan is the director of CuriousWorks, a company that makes art based on ideas as opposed to rigidly following a particular art form, and works with minority groups to develop their own artistic, performance and fimmaking skills to tell their own stories.
This talk was filmed on Tuesday July 26th, 2011 as part of the COFA Talks series.
