Herakut-Colours-Of-Resilience-2

On june 6 Herakut, in collaboration with AptART & ACTED, will be opening “Colours of resilience” a new exhibition based on their last trip to the refugee camp Za’atari earlier this year (here).
Curated by Hera, the exhibition will be presenting works by the artist collective as well as the results of workshops, photographs and installations. There will also be panel discussions, readings, film screenings and live music. Entrance is free of charge.

From the press release:

“…a group exhibition featuring a collection of works from street art projects in Syrian refugee camps and communities and across north Jordan.

The exhibition will showcase a floor to ceiling installation featuring canvas paintings and photography from Jordanian and Syrian youth. The works are both individual and collaborative, created with International and local artists. In addition to the paintings, drawings and photography, there will be a program of several talks, workshops, readings, as well as a film screening intoned by live-music acts – all designed as a chance for the audience to connect with the topic on different levels, emotionally and intellectually. Through workshops and guided tours the public always gets the opportunity to experience the exhibition, take in all impressions, but then also to address their questions and express their own thoughts, to interact and get involved.

The opening reception will take place at the AusstellungsHalle, Schulstraße 1a, in Frankfurt on Friday June 6th, 2014 from 6 to 10 PM. The exhibition is free, open to the public and will culminate in an event for World Refugee Day on June 20th.
