In Kalila wa Dimna: Ancient Tales for Troubled Times, the long travelling famous fables of Kalila wa Dimna, which have been translated into more than 40 languages, are brought to life in an exhibition that addresses some of the important social, cultural, and political issues of our time. Amidst global social and political instability and natural calamities, art for art’s sake is no longer enough for many socially engaged artists, especially those living or working in challenging environments.

In this online talk artists Dima Nachawi, Ali J. Dalloul, DemaOne and Alyson Frazier, the founder of Play for Progress, a Croydon based charity, discuss collaborative art practices in challenging environments.
