Ruth Daniel

Ruth Daniel, CEO of In Place of War has led cultural projects across the Globe in sites of conflict. She explores how revolutionary artists and changemakers around the world are using art to change their communities. From a female rapper in Zimbabwe to Palestinian painters, to media ninjas running an alternative network across Brazil, these radical subversive creatives are using art to transform the communities and world around them.
We live in an increasingly polarised world, with prevailing conflicts across the globe, hostility towards refugees and migrants, minority groups and muslims, exemplified by the rise of the right in Europe and Latin America, Donald Trump and Brexit. These artists and changemakers show it’s possible to mobilise beyond conventional forms of protest and dissent that often seem ineffective in our post-truth world.
