Come join us to celebrate the opening of this interactive exhibit on conflict graffiti. You'll get to meet the curators of the exhibit and participate in the art as well.

Street art makes an important contribution to understanding local conflict-dynamics and visions of peace. Art created on public walls, signs and structures can reveal narratives about everyday concerns and opinions. It expresses multiple and often contradicting narratives by different artists and communities, which is especially valuable in situations of conflict and censorship.

This exhibition includes photos of street art pieces from a range of conflict-affected societies and an opportunity to leave your own ‘mark’ on the gallery walls. Come explore topics of resistance, political communication, commemoration, and identity expression.

Please register here for the opening event 7-8pm Wednesday 25 January 2023.
