Walls of Freedom: Street Art of the Egyptian Revolution

Don Karl, aka Stone, is a cultural activist, graffiti writer, and author/co-editor of seminal book on Egyptian street art, Walls of Freedom – a powerful portrayal of the first three years of the Egyptian revolution that began in January 2011. Stone explores the impact of murals and street-based activism on the nature and progression of this historic uprising, and the legacy of these images in Egypt’s creative and cultural psyche. Join him to hear about a journey that led him to co-author the world’s first banned graffiti book.
