CRITICAL VOICES IN CRITICAL TIMES
Since the Arab uprisings of 2011, the world has witnessed a stream of popular protest movements, the acceleration of extreme inequality, precarity, migration, unhinged populisms, and a planetary tipping point. "Critical Voices in Critical Times" engages the ideas and works of critical thinkers, artists and activists to make sense of the present moment and think about how to put affirmative ideas into practice. The long-form interviews are available on the North Africa and West Asia (NAWA) section of openDemocracy. Critical Voices videos shot, edited and produced by Linda Herrera
