SARAJEVO / The Freedom to Create Exhibition at the Art Gallery of BIH is a special compilation of artworks from the 2010 Freedom to Create Prize entries that focus on peace building. We can also see 'Frames of Reality', a unique peace building initiative in collaboration with the Peres Center for Peace. The exhibition will be open until August 2, 2011.

The Freedom to Create Exhibition provides a platform for artists to express the fear, challenges and aspirations of ordinary people and encourages the collective participation of society in perpetuating change. Previous Freedom to Create Exhibitions have been held in London, New York, Harare, Kabul, Cairo and Mumbai.
