Escaping police, getting death threats, being sacked from the university, having disabilities and being proud BAME and still successfully living from his artwork. The multidisciplinary, socially & politically engaged artist Dr. Gil Mualem-Doron will give a talk about all of these and the most radical exhibition space in Brighton – SEAS -(Socially Engaged Arts Space), which celebrate its 3rd year this month.
