Can Art change the World? | Zena El Khalil | TEDxHyderabad

Art and activism, unlikely friends? Listen to Zena tell us about how she brought the two together. Is she an artist or is she an activist? Why does Zena do things differently? What compels her to risk her life and preach about love. She speaks to us about her take on art and how, through times, it has been used as an instrument of activism against war.

“Beirut, I Love You,” she wrote. “Of Love & War,” she portrayed. She performs wearing a pink bride dress at the Beirut International Marathon every year, to raise awareness on issues in Lebanon pertaining to animal rights, civil marriage, and to spread love, peace and positivity. She actively promotes the under-represented Arab artists through her projects and works in formats ranging from painting, installation, performance, mixed media, collage and writing. An avid fan of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s music, she believes in Mahatma Gandhi’s mantra of “be the change you wish to see in the world.”

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
