Disarm the Gallery!
LEAVE A COMMENT:
Calling all artists, creative folk and craftivists.
Saturday 25 February, 1pm-3.30pm, London.
Last year the National Gallery hosted an evening reception for weapons dealers, celebrating the first day of business at DSEi, the world’s largest arms fair.
Italian arms company, Finmeccanica sponsors the gallery: for £30,000 it buys the opportunity to use the gallery’s rooms to impress its clients and woo decision-makers. Against such a lavish backdrop it’s probably easy to forget that their business is death and destruction.
Help get the arms dealers out of the Gallery
Stop the Arms Fair is launching a campaign to end the National Gallery’s links with Finmeccanica. There is loads of potential for artivism: using art to communicate and win the campaign. Get involved and help plan a creative and engaging launch action and sketch out future plans.
When: Saturday 25 February, 1pm-3.30pm
Where: Room 1, Friends House, Euston Road (opposite Euston station)
