Amina Wadud
Televisieportret van Amina Wadud: docent en onderzoeker Islamitische
Studies en schrijfster van het boek De Koran en de Vrouw. Als vrouw,
zwarte vrouw zelfs, lijkt Wadud nauwelijks in de positie om het geloof
te hervormen. Maar juist zij werd die ene zwarte islamitische vrouw die
de moslimwereld verbijsterde door zelf voor te gaan in het gebed (Synod
House, New York, 2005).

Wadud staat op de bres voor een betere balans in de 'gender'-deelname
aan het maatschappelijk verkeer: vrouwen actiever in het publieke
domein, mannen nadrukkelijker aanwezig in het private domein van -
willekeurig voorbeeld - de afwas. Kalm en zonder stemverheffing preekt
Wadud een milde feministische hervorming van de islam - en is daarom
veroordeeld tot het opgejaagde leven van de vogelvrije.

Filmmaker Elli Safari (KinoSafari) reisde naar verschillende plekken op
de aardbol en registreerde de onafhankelijke denker Amina Wadud en haar
opmerkelijk effect op geloofsgenoten.

Uitzending op 30-4-2006 van 12.00 tot 12.30 op Nederland 1
Herhaling op 6-5-2006 van 10.30 tot 11.00 uur via Nerderland 1

ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
a belief in cultural, creative and integral expression as a means to
affecting deep and lasting social change

Art for Social Change is creative expression that emerges from artists to
improve individual and collective circumstances. Art for Social Change
involves an understanding of creation that includes not only objects,
but also geographic locations, groups of people and collective
consciousness.

Social artists are concerned with the many ways art can function, like
community development, the environment, education, intergenerational
communication, healthcare, technology, politics, conflict resolution,
community regeneration and cultural citizenship. They are working in all
media, in all disciplines, in all locations.

Social artists are committed to bringing the arts to bear on the widest
possible range of social conditions and challenges facing our society.
These efforts seek to create social change at every level of society,
from personal to political.

At the heart of this social vision is a belief in cultural and creative
expression as a means to affecting deep and lasting social change. Art
becomes a political act, a conscious effort to facilitate and
participate in social change.

Art for Social Change is an expression of both individual and group
identity. All creative expression is an expression of both individual
and group life. Instead of an isolated individual, the artist serves as
a cultural catalyst of social intervention and transformation.

Through art, we can challenge many of our society's deepest assumptions,
such as the boundaries between self and other, 'artist' and
'non-artist', present and past, male and female, young and old,
'normal'
and 'abnormal'. The social artist builds upon the power of artistic
creation and expression to spark new ideas, catalyze critical thinking,
elicit new actions, inspire individuals and create visions.

If the majority of the people do not believe in the possibility and the
rightness of their common cause, nothing long-lasting will be changed.
This is where art and artists play an essential role. If we want
freedom, we must promote free expression. If we want equity, we must
have equal access and support in expressing ourselves.

If we want respect, love and beauty among us and others, we must actively
promote it through our art.
