The policy or action of using vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change.

"I think that there's always been activism in the art world and activism through the generations. There's always activism. There have always been people standing and fighting for things that are important to them. I think that’s a word that should stay. But there's always a danger that it could become watered down."

"Well, the most important word for me is activism. I just don’t have time for artists who aren’t active. And it always goes back to when Nina Simone said ‘how can you be an artist and not reflect the times?"
