Artists for Palestine UK (APUK), BRICUP’s sister organisation, has gathered over 1,000 British artists including Academy and Bafta award winners to join in the call for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the silencing of Palestinian voices. Their list of incidents, in Britain and abroad, where Palestinians and their works of art have been suppressed is long and disturbing. You can read their letter here.

To the Arts and Culture Sector,

We write to you as artists and cultural workers united in our commitment to justice, dignity, freedom, and equality for all people in Israel / Palestine. We hold every life to be precious, and we grieve every death. 

The scale of violence unfolding in Gaza demands our collective attention and action. 

Members of Israel’s far-right government are openly calling for ethnic cleansing. 

The use of starvation as a weapon of war, along with denial of water and electricity, is cruel beyond words. 

The wholesale destruction of civilian infrastructure, the bombing of hospitals, schools, churches and mosques, the killing of 14,500  people in a matter of weeks, amount to a policy of collective punishment against the Palestinian people. The United Nations and hundreds of legal scolars have called on the international community to prevent genocide.

As artists, we cannot remain silent in the face of such egregious violations of international humanitarian law.

While catastrophe unfolds, we have observed a glaring absence of statements of solidarity with Palestinian people from most UK arts organisations.

We find it deeply troubling and, frankly, indicative of a disturbing double standard that expressions of solidarity, which have been readily offered to other peoples facing brutal oppression, have not been extended to Palestinians. 

Such a discrepancy raises serious questions about bias in the response to grave human rights violations.

Far from supporting our calls for an end to the violence, many cultural institutions in Western countries are systematically repressing, silencing and stigmatising Palestinian voices and perspectives. This includes targeting and threatening the livelihoods of artists and arts workers who express solidarity with Palestinians, as well as cancelling performancesscreeningstalksexhibitions and book launches.

Despite this pressure, artists in their thousands are following their conscience and continuing to speak out. Freedom of expression, as enshrined in the Human Rights Act and the European Convention of Human Rights is the backbone of our creative lives, and fundamental to democracy. We remind cultural organisations and their funders of their obligation to uphold the right to freedom of expression and to uphold their commitment to anti-discrimination.

As artists and cultural workers, we stand in solidarity with those facing threats and intimidation in the workplace. The arts sector must urgently align its actions with its stated values of justice and inclusivity, and to refuse the dehumanisation of Palestinian people.

We call upon the arts and culture sector to:

– Publicly demand a permanent ceasefire.
– Promote and amplify the voices of Palestinian artists, writers, and thinkers.
– Stand up for artists and workers who voice their support for Palestinian rights.
– Refuse collaborations with institutions or bodies that are complicit in severe human rights violations.

To stay silent in the face of mass injustice and worsening humanitarian crisis would be an abrogation of moral duty. To actively silence the principled artists and workers who do fulfil this responsibility is a failure to meet legal obligations on freedom of expression and anti-discrimination. Many artists are refusing to work with institutions that fail to meet these basic obligations.

The struggle for freedom from racism for Palestinians and Jews is one of collective liberation. We refuse to pit one community against the other, and stand firmly against all forms of racism including Islamophobia and antisemitism.

In the spirit of justice, equality, and the shared values of the arts, we urge you to take a principled stance.

Additional statements:

“A performance of my play ‘And Here I Am’ (based on the life of Palestinian actor Ahmed Tobasi and performed by him) was cancelled in Paris recently. This came as a shock because the play had been performed in the UK and several other countries with no problem. There has been an impulse that following the events of October 7, stories of Palestinians somehow became inappropriate. This censorship is as frustrating as it is wrongheaded. Now is the time to listen to Palestinians, to understand what their lives are like and that includes, dare I say it, those that are militant because without comprehending the nature of the occupation the Palestinians are subjected to, we are doomed to be trapped in the so called ‘cycle of violence.’ Palestinian voices and stories are now needed more than ever and it will be a test for our democracies whether they are given the space by our cultural institutions who claim to champion freedom of expression.”
Hassan Abulrazzak, playwright

“It is an alarming state of affairs when a film screening, play or poetry reading is deemed controversial simply because it addresses Palestinian experiences. Or when arts workers are targeted from within their own industry simply for expressing a view on what is happening in Gaza. This needs to stop.”
Emma Seligman, writer director

“We commend all those following their conscience and continuing to speak out against apartheid and colonialism. It is truly an appalling state of affairs where artists and cultural workers feel afraid to speak out on a matter of justice, and we have received a number of reports of attempted censorship in the past two months. However, we have also seen workers in the sector push back and remain firm in their commitment to justice, and we encourage those who have any concerns to contact the ELSC for advice.”
Gabriel Frankel, UK legal officer, European Legal Support Centre
