Art Breath, in collaboration with SOAS, will hold a series of events looking at the intricate relationship between art and politics.
Through the lens of art, the themes that will be explored throughout the series are: soft power, freedom of expression, street art, gender, identity, conflict, peace building, and many more.
The fifth event in the series will take place on Wednesday 6th June 2018 in the format of an interview and Q&A, followed by a drinks reception.
Ambassador Rami Mortada will discuss his professional experiences as an Ambassador in various countries and his perspective on arts and culture within politics. The focus of the discussion will be on how and if culture and cultural events can be tools to bring countries, people and communities together and how art and diplomacy can work together to create understanding. We will also reflect on Lebanon and how the country and its diaspora put forward its culture and arts.
