WAR, three simple letters that inspire terror. War can take many forms, and many acronyms. The 'Just War,’ the ‘Holy War,’ the ‘War on Terror,’ going on a ‘Warpath,’ ‘Internal Struggle,' "Domestic Conflict,' ‘Sparring Partners’, ‘Trading Barbs’...

War can be external and internal, social or domestic, political or personal.

As poets, writers, choreographers, musicians, playwrights, how can you address this overarching topic using the images in the exhibition. Let your creativity shine and do not worry that your interpretation doesn’t scream war.
