Residency on creative practice and activism in the context of conflict and oppression – Peace Research Institute Oslo


On August 15, PRIO, PRAKSIS and Motaz Habbash will launch a month-long residency with ten artists whose creative practices respond to lived experiences of conflict and oppression.

​This residency aims to create a space for exploring the themes “Repression – Expression // Violence – Creative Resistance” and the participating artists will form a temporary community. It is underpinned by PRIO’s ongoing research project, INSPIRE, which studies creative practice and activism in contexts of war. The participating artists are Iman Jabrah, Ayman AlAzraq, Yanina Zaichanka, Yamile Calderon, Jad El Koury, Diala Brisly, Nastassja Nefjodov, Tania Canas, Daria Pugachova and Khalid Shatta.
