Spoken Resistance

A collaboration with GAL A Theatre, Spoken Resistance provides young and emerging
artists with the long-term support and creative sustenance they need to develop as artists and
community assets. Spoken Resistance is the winner of the 2002 Mayor’s Art Award for
Outstanding Emerging Artist.
