|Drumming up support for 'Artists for Brexit.' Painting by Stephen McLean|
'Artists for Brexit', a brand new arts movement, was created recently in a Wetherspoon's pub in London. It's not the first time inspired artists have created new collaborations in a pub, but I have a notion this gathering of individuals just might merit a mention in future annals of history.
Not all that long ago it was the poets, painters, songwriters and playwrights who were at the forefront of social and political change. Artists and artisans were there at the forefront in Renaissance and Enlightenment periods: since the early 19th Century, bohemian cliques were always assumed to be lurking in the wings to question and challenge the status quo.
