Arts Canteen is a London-based venture with the prime focus of sharing Middle Eastern art with UK audiences, specifically London. Working with artists, musicians and filmmakers across the world, the director of Arts Canteen, Aser El Saqqa, has put together a host of different art-based projects in the capital; with a vision for many community focused events to come. Arts Canteen’s latest project is the Defiance Exhibiton – showcasing work from five Palestinian artists, which has been hosted by Stone Space, Leytonstone. We took the opportunity to meet with Aser El Saqqa, to ask him about the exhibition and the ambition behind Arts Canteen.
