Inspired by work undertaken through Writers Against the War on Gaza (WAWOG), Creating a Revolutionary Cultural Front will engage historical analysis and creative production to explore literary and artistic modes of struggle throughout Palestine’s history. We will examine writing, visual art, community organizing and direct action as formats of cultural production. Informed by the impacts of cultural organizing in the United States during the Vietnam War and the AIDS crisis, participants will workshop writing, visual art, direct action and organizing proposals.

Creating a Revolutionary Cultural Front will be held in-person at the Abrons Arts Center.
