Return To Cultural Democracy – the movie









George Fleming is a film maker and lecturer who has worked as a participatory artist.

During his doctoral studies he began exploring the concept of cultural democracy and produced a short film on aspects of the history of the idea for a conference. Sophie Hope attended the conference and persuaded George to join us to discuss what he learned while making the film.

He discusses the relationship between community art, participatory arts, cultural democracy and cultural diversity. He introduces us to the work of Rachel Davis Dubois, an American cultural activist who developed plans for intercultural education in the 1930s.
