Creativity & Conflict: Producing Art in Palestine

The Blue Moon

When words fail, art speaks.

Can art be a tool for positive change in areas of conflict?

Are those under occupation able to tell their stories through creativity?

How can the leading visual artists from Gaza share their stories, motivations, frustrations and realities of being artists under siege?

Nick Welsh is Head of Communications at Amos Trust, a small creative human rights organisation working in Palestine. His job is to raise awareness of the horrors of home demolitions, the Separation Wall, restrictions on freedom of movement and the daily impact of life under occupation.

He works alongside artists, musicians and chefs to advocate and campaign for Palestinian equal rights and an end to the Israeli government’s apartheid policies.

In conversation with Paul Smith they will focus on street art in the West Bank, visual art in Gaza and why Banksy decided to open a hotel and art gallery in Bethlehem. Please join us.

Nick set up Mono Industries, a small design practice, in 1994, following a few years working in the music industry. Concentrating on graphic design, branding, film and web projects, Nick worked across the arts, tech, professional services and third sectors.

In 2014, he started work as Head of Communications at Amos Trust, a small creative human rights organisation working mainly in Palestine (the West Bank and Gaza Strip). Nick is a co-founder of the Early Night Club in Cambridge and DJs regularly.
