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, South Asia and Middle East.
ArtLords refers to creating a network of artists who are committed to addressing social injustices through their artwork. This involves bringing together artists from different backgrounds and disciplines to collaborate, share ideas, and create work that raises awareness about issues such as discrimination, inequality, and oppression. By leveraging their creative talents, this community of artists can use their platforms to promote social change and advocate for a more equitable and just society.
