On 6th June Sandblast Arts are hosting a double film screening and Q&A with the filmmakers and Saharawi activists to help raise money for Sandblast!
This special fund and awareness raising event will help support Sandblast Arts, a UK arts & human rights charity promoting the voices and visions of the Saharawi from Western Sahara.
All funds raised will go towards Desert Voicebox; our after school programme providing music education and English language lessons with Saharawi children in the refugee camps in Algeria.
After the screenings, we will be hosting a Q&A discussion with UK-based filmmakers Carolina Graterol, Daniel Petkoff, Peter Shields, and local Saharawi activists. The Q&A will be hosted by Paula Beegan Haddad from the Cambridge African Film Festival.
"Thanks to the generous support of Act One Cinema, we will also be using their fully accessible gallery space to showcase Saharawi art and photography, a silent auction, traditional Saharawi tea ceremonies and more. The gallery space will also be open to the public from May 30-June 9 with a photography exhibition and sale from Sandblast founder Danielle Smith."
