Art of Resistance Collective
Art has the ability to touch society profoundly and invoke positive change. To this end, we will offer like-minded artists a platform through organising film screenings, exhibitions, concerts, theatre and dance performances, readings and workshops to stimulate discussion and foster understanding, peace and tolerance.
Through cultural exchanges we aim to explore and share the creative practices of artists around the world who are standing up to oppression. We are particularly inspired by the people of Palestine, whose talent, commitment and passion we will highlight, widening our own horizons and celebrating their contribution to humanity.

Rik Walton - photographer
