Are artists the most powerful activists?

  • Carpenters Workshop Gallery 4 Albemarle Street W1S 4GA (map)

With artists documenting, exploring or commenting on conflict and its consequences, we witness the blurring of cultural boundaries and the frontline. Perhaps more than ever before, we see artists today engaging on issues of migration, security, oppression and the freedom of expression. Join us for a discussion on contemporary conflict, the impact of technology, and the role and power of artists today.
