A statement from Project Arts Centre

Project Arts Centre recognises the importance of artists in society and their right to make work free from censorship. We believe that freedom of artistic expression and the right to protest are essential to democracy.

Since October, approximately 30,000 people have been killed in Gaza, over 65,000 have been injured. 17,000 children are unaccompanied. Over 1,900,000 Palestinians in Gaza are at imminent risk of forced starvation and lack access to clean water, healthcare and the conditions necessary to life.*

We join with artists and citizens across the world calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and support for those agencies doing vital work to bring food and humanitarian medical aid to the people there.

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine
We live in the shelter of each other’s shadows
