Discussion: Aesthetic Activisim for Palestine

Wed, April 21, 2010 6:00 pm at Alwan for the Arts

(View all discussions »)

Resistance through different aesthetic forms helps to educate the public and brings better understanding of situations around the world that indirectly affect us. Aesthetic activism for Palestine is an attempt to engage and get people of diverse backgrounds to think about opening multiple avenues of resistence through their professions, different intellectual milieus, and social affiliations that are hitherto unexplored.
