At the turn of the millennium we entered an era of increasingly accessible news, connectivity and awareness, with ubiquitous daily communications hurtling towards us at greater speeds than ever before. We were nudged away from passively receiving this information via the pages of newspapers and became active participants, sharing local and global narratives via social media.

The resulting social structures and shifting networks have the power to uplift and galvanise communities but they can also generate and sustain inequality. With this comes the spread of false information designed to frustrate attempts to identify and address those inequalities and reduce access to justice.

Within this complex set of ideas, what does justice look like and what barriers restrict access to this? What structures reinforce inequalities and how can these be highlighted and tackled? What is misinformation predicated upon, and how do successful disinformation campaigns leverage long-held myths about identity and inequality? With so many voices fighting to be heard, who can we trust?

Tackling (or in some cases reinforcing) injustice, inequality and misinformation have become key agendas for many politicians, lawmakers, academics, media outlets, medical practitioners, grassroots movements, and of course those in the arts.

What role can the arts play in tackling injustice, inequality, and misinformation? How can we acknowledge the role the Arts may have played in previously supporting them? Through sub themes including ideas of identity, inclusivity, narratives, bodies, play, education, action and communities our students have worked on projects that tackle these questions head on.
