The Artivism podcast amplifies and elevates the voices and work of people who are leading the charge to change society through art and activism.

Join Linda Steele, founder, and CEO of ArtUp in Memphis, as she interviews painters, musicians, hip-hop artists, chefs and others, who are weaving social activism into their creative practice. We will find out more about the projects, careers, and contributions of these local and national artists and change makers.

Artivism explores how creativity is challenging and transforming long-standing ideas about equity, diversity, and inclusion.
