About the show

Imagine Otherwise is a podcast about the people and projects bridging art, activism, and academia to build better worlds. In each episode, host Cathy Hannabach interviews creators who use culture for social justice to explore the nitty-gritty work of imagining and creating more just worlds.

Why imagine otherwise?

To make more of us. We need more progressive, social justice-oriented folks who combine the intellectual platform and methodologies of academia, the creativity and wonder of art, and the fire and rage of activism to create the worlds we want. We need more brilliant books that ignite ideas, more art that sparks protests, more activism that historicizes and critiques, and more communities that can enact the change they need.

This podcast is a way to highlight the kick-ass, worldmaking cultural productions that people are collaboratively generating at the nexus of art, activism, and academia. Maybe it will inspire you to create your own.
