With the intention of showing the Iraqi Arts Community that our collective cultural voice cannot and will not be silenced, and representing the 30 people killed and 100 injured, The broadsides are traveling the world to various venues highlighting the project and raising funds for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders.
