Conflict & the Creative Arts

This exhibition features an array of artworks that respond to the theme of conflict. With pieces across film, photography, illustration and sculpture, the artists delve into narratives of conflict, from identity politics to armed conflict.

This exhibition coincides with UCA's inaugural Conflict and the Creative Arts Conference, 21 October 2021, bringing academics, artists, practitioners and researchers together to debate the role artistic practice plays in transforming the social reality of people in contexts of conflict. 

Visitors to UCA Canterbury can explore the display in the Cragg Corridor exhibition space. The artworks have also been brought together in a digital exhibition that you can discover below.
