Urban Art for Countering Violent Extremism

ArtLords harnesses the gentle yet compelling force of art to nurture acceptance and unity among Afghanistan’s populace, advocating for respect towards diversity, the cessation of conflict, and the establishment of peace. As Afghanistan’s foremost art movement, ArtLords has created numerous murals that symbolize the convergence of the nation’s diverse tribes, championing the cause of harmony and security. Through poignant messages such as ‘Don’t do explosions here; you are killing innocent people,’ these murals serve as a powerful reminder of the collective aspiration for peace and the value of every human life.
