COLLIN SEKAJUGO (Uganda-Rwanda) is a committed visual artist who cannot understand creation without the relationship with the community. Answering to his concern of connection with society, Collin has created in a few years two reference points in East Africa (Rwanda and Uganda). See Nicky Armstrong interview http://jiwarbarcelona.com/catala-interview-to-collin-sekajugo/

HALE EKINCI (Turkey-USA) is a visual artist. She is collecting stories of resistance activists in our city of Barcelona, to whom she has honored with a series of sculptures in the symbolic protest sites of the city.

SACHIYO KANEKO, Japanese artist, will show the documentation of the performance WAVE held with great success at the Plaça del Diamant in Gràcia with violinist Pavel Amilcar (Dyvina Misteria) and the artist Mireia Zantop.

CAMILLE RAJOTTE (Quebec) will present her project "The inverted square" which is under production. A large sculpture reproducing the inverted topography of the Plaça del Diamant will be installed as of April 8th in the square, to make regulars and passers-by reflect about an everyday place.

In order to be able to give grants to artists from emerging countries more assiduously, especially from the Arab world and sub-Saharan Africa, and to give stability to the project, Jiwar will soon start a partner raising campaign. To learn more: http://jiwarbarcelona.com/colabora/
