Anti-Apartheid Now - Arts Council England Funded Project
Anti- Apartheid, Now is a Liliesleaf Trust UK led project that draws on the legacy of the UK’s movement against apartheid (MAA).

This project has been further supported by the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust and Islington Council's Local Initiatives Fund.
