This month we will engage in an art build project that will stand in solidarity with all political prisoners in Palestine and beyond. At sundown we will watch an incredibly powerful film together that highlights the plight of creating art under occupation and apartheid.
Stay tuned for more information about the art build!!
About the film:
Slingshot Hip Hop braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and Palestine 48 as they discover Hip Hop and employ it as a tool to surmount divisions imposed by occupation and poverty. From internal checkpoints and separation walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young artists breaking through the borders that separate them.

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY:
ATL Radical Art is a collective of local Atlanta artists committed to the creation of a radical and artistic counterculture in response to the social and political climate of our time. Our Artists engage in performances/experiments that shed light on topics of intersectional struggle, liberation and protest from around the globe. Our vision is to create create spaces and works that thrive independent of institutional funding, finding its strength in community support. This community is primarily for people of color, non-men, queer & trans artists across multiple disciplines as well as accomplices who are working jointly with us towards similar goals and prioritize the visibility of said communities in Atlanta’s art scene.
