Our Hen House – Art in Activism and Why People Won’t Change and What We Can We Do About It

Two vegan psychologists explore creative ways in which we can usher in a vegan world, in this series on the US-based podcast Our Hen House. First up is psychologist Linda Brant about her recent project, Monument To Animals We Do Not Mourn. She talks about the creation of the project and some of the beautiful symbolism she incorporated into it and the role of art in activism.

Then Vegan Psychologist Clare Mann explains the theory of “life myths” and how understanding how myths limit our own growth and open-mindedness, can be used to break through the trance of people’s resistance to veganism.
