Art, War and Another Afghanistan

RMIT Culture is proud to support The Twenty Year project. This is a rare opportunity to experience a multidisciplinary exhibition of Afghan creativity, without intervention.

Haunting images from Kabul Airport filled Western television screens following the 2021 Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, drawing into sharp relief the devastation caused by decades of conflict and the West's failure of accountability.

The Twenty Years project is an initiative that aims to centre Afghan voices and stories, and to reflect on and respond to the legacy of the longest war in US and Australian history. This coalition of contemporary artists and journalists assess the conflict from both Afghan and Australian perspectives. At this event, you'll hear from writers, musicians, photographers, refugees and activists in a celebration of Afghan resilience, art and creativity.
