The Showroom

Workshop led by Azad Ali


A free workshop in the context of artist Navine G. Khan-Dossos’ project There Is No Alternative.

Led by Azad Ali, Community Relations Director at CAGE, the workshop will explore ways in which creative spaces can challenge the encroachment of counter extremism-led strategies such as Prevent.

There will be opportunities to share knowledge, experiences and understanding of the government's pre-crime policies and strategies; to spend time with the research archive that Navine G. Khan-Dossos has gathered for the project.
