This online event will showcase the poetic work of activists and artists from the MENA region and elsewhere, including an excerpt of the documentary SING AND CRY, CRY AND SING with Artur Ligeska.
This year the UAE is hosting the Dubai Expo, an event that claims that “when the world comes together, we create a better tomorrow.”
But “coming together to hear diverse voices” and “create a better world” isn’t possible when you lock up people for speaking their minds. In the UAE, every single human rights defender has been exiled or imprisoned in violation of their right to freedom of expression. Not one of them has been invited to the Dubai Expo.
