Tolerance Poster show at Urban Satellite Space, Dubai

On May 15th, we had an opening of the Tolerance Poster show at Zayed University at their Urban Satellite Space (ZUUSS), Warehouse 48, Alserkal Avenue. The show will be open until June 30th, 2019. 
Due to the "sensitive nature", some of the posters were removed from the show. The organizer decided, rather than leave them out of the show altogether, they were included as a “sculpture” in the middle of the room so that there was an opportunity for discussion with the visitors.
