Join us Monday, May 30th for a benefit concert for Imaging Apartheid: the Poster Project for Palestine. Over the past year Imaging Apartheid has been working to gather powerful graphic and poster art work from around the world illustrating the Palestinian struggle for freedom, we are working within the context of the global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign. Join us for our second in a series of benefit concerts that aim to raise funds and build support for Imaging Apartheid, specifically our outreach work, printing costs of the selected posters, and costs associated to their eventual exhibition and distribution.

Imaging Apartheid’s upcoming concert will feature the following amazing artists, so please come out, bring your friends & enjoy while supporting our project!
