Maybe you're not so great at organizing a protest or shouting at the top of your lungs into a bullhorn. That's OK. Creating social change isn't limited to chants and demonstrations. It can also be a powerful poem, a compelling design on a placard or a painting that captures the spirit of the movement. If that's how you like to make your mark on the world, check out Art X Social Change Night at Spacebar in the Milk District. This free event features all different mediums, including visual art, musical and spoken word performances, poetry, dance and plays, focused around varying themes of social justice. Originally scheduled for Sunday, June 12, this event was postponed in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting, creating a new sense of poignancy for the night.
