Featured in the Wall Street International Newspaper for the Hundred Years Gallery, Oct 15th to 28th
Sandblast is excited to have received support from Arts Council England to mark 40 years of conflict in Western Sahara with a series of collaborative events at two vibrant London venues, Bolivar Hall (Venezuelan embassy) and Hundred Years Gallery.
Through photography, film, music and much more, Africa’s Last Colony aims to remember the most important events that have shaped the independence struggle of the Saharawi people of Western Sahara, as well as to showcase the valuable role of UK-based artists and activists in raising awareness of this underreported issue.

All events free (invitation needed for Private View on Oct 15th)
