Join us for a Jazz benefit concert in Montreal to build support and raise funds for Imaging Apartheid: the Poster Project for Palestine. As the global movement in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for liberation continues to grow, Imaging Apartheid is calling on graphic designers and artists to submit work for a global poster art exhibition. In the next months Imaging Apartheid will be holding a series of concerts to raise funds and reach out to artists concerning the project.
