Attend Sandblast’s two final events of its Africa’s Last Colony exhibition
For nearly two weeks the charity Sandblast has been holding a series of events to mark 40 years of conflict in the Western Sahara. The Africa’s Last Colony exhibition has aimed to highlight the anniversary through film and photography, and its last two events are due to take place at Bolivar Hall on October 30 and November 7.
The first is a premiere of the film Life Is Watching: Referendum and Resistance in Western Sahara and a following panel discussion featuring a line up of guests including the Saharawi grassroots youth group Saharawi Voice and the Venezuelan ambassador to France, Hector Mujica. The exhibition then ends with the grand finale; a benefit concert of music and spoken word performances by held to show solidarity with the Sahawari people of Western Sahara.
Both events start at 7:30pm on their respective dates and funds raised from tickets will go towards Sandblast’s ‘Studio-Live’ music-project. For tickets and more information, visit Sandblast’s website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
