This literature review explores artivism, the combination of art and activism, which uses the online capabilities of the internet and social media, making it a modern version of art activism – the immense networking opportunities and the ability to reach a larger audience. The findings show that artivism was grown from art in activism or art activism as early as the 1400s and the positive impacts artivism brings to communities.
