Arts of Resistance Festival: cultures against imperialism

Colonialism is not history. To this day, vast amounts of resources and labour-power are transferred each year from the Global South to the Global North. Governments are overthrown, workers exploited and ecosystems destroyed by Western multinational corporations. Throughout history there has been a rich tradition of anti-imperialist resistance in cultural and art movements.” From mass cultural organizations in Indonesia such as Lekra, to revolutionary artists working on Global South unity in Cuba. This festival will honour anti-imperialist resistance art, then and now. Ranging from conscious hip-hop to the art of drawing, from film and panelists to dance and afrobeat, we have a line-up full of organizers and artists that will bring anti-imperialist resistance alive in Amsterdam.
