 Coffin art in Ghana
 Guerilla gardeners
Air-walking in China, scissor-dancing in Peru and guerrilla gardening in the UK are just some of the activities we focus on.

Artsworld examines how the arts are used to bring about social change, highlight injustice and provoke political reform and tells stories that change perceptions about the world we live in and allow for a greater understanding of other cultures and traditions.


Artsworld can be seen each week at the following times GMT: Monday: 05:30, 11:30; Tuesday: 01:30, 1400, 23:30; Wednesday: 16:30; Thursday: 14:30; Friday: 06:00; Saturday: 19:30; Sunday: 10:30
