4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture

Research Residency - Noor Abuarafeh

For the UK residency, the Royal College of Art has partnered with Delfina Foundation to provide an opportunity for an artist who is interested in working with people in the context of cultural intolerance and those who feel marginalised in London. The aim is to facilitate a close interaction with communities and audiences who are not usually engaged with the existing cultural offer and do not have a voice in it.

Adam Khalil & Bayley Sweitzer: Nosferasta
