For the last century Palestinian have used arts and creative expressions to further their resistance and build communities despite colonialism and ethnic cleansing.

Through a series of insightful discussions, activities, panels, and talks – taking inspiration from Palestinian artists and activists – we’ll explore the power of art in building communities of resistance and resilience. From exploring grassroots organising to harnessing the transformative potential of creativity, this event is a space to delve into the myriad ways in which communities can come together to resist oppression and work towards liberation.

Whether you’re an artist, activist, thinker, or simply want to find ways to do something in this historical movement, join us as we delve into the art of gathering for resistance, and learn how we can all play a part in the struggle for a more just world, with a special emphasis on action for Palestine.

Stay tuned for updates on speakers and panelists, and mark your calendars for an afternoon of inspiration, empowerment, and collective action.
