ArtLords' exhibition at American University of Afghanistan
The group sees the potential and desire for change in young population of Afghanistan to address concerns and create s olutions based on alternative ways of thinking. It is finding solution in the absolute center of the problem itself. ArtLords realized the opportunity for converting the negative psychological impact of blast walls on the people of Kabul into a positive visual experience.
Artlords was established in 2014. It is a grassroots movement of artists and volunteers motivated by the desire to pave the way for social transformation and behavioral change through employing the soft power of art and culture as a non-intrusive approach.
Global Art Inclusive Peace in Afghanistan
Taliban regime from 1996 – 2001 locked women of Afghanistan inside their houses and banned any expression of art.
They are against art and women.
This is perilous time for the people of Afghanistan, especially for the women and artists. We invite and call up on all artists from around the world to contribute a concept, design, play or a painting in solidarity with the women and art in Afghanistan. Team ArtLords will paint or perform your art in Afghanistan.
We are the only organization, advocating for art in the front-line of war against terror and oppression. Join in with your oeuvre and make a statement.
It doesn’t matter if you are in Afghanistan, you can make a big difference with your art.

ArtLords is to promote the message of peace in Afghanistan through the expressivity of the arts and culture. It wished to portray a visual representation of the communities’ desire to move from war towards peace. Creating a relationship between people and art, by bringing art to the people, allows for a much-needed psychological shift that opens up people’s minds to new prospects. The use of art opens up space for ‘emotions without affiliation’. It stimulates critical thought and helps people understand that war is a commonly shared experience and that only a common effort, coming from within society, can bring about peace in Afghanistan.
