Culture Under Attack - Photographic Exhibition

Hosted by the Australian Red Cross and Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.

You are warmly invited to the opening of the photographic exhibition Culture Under Attack, an exhibition to highlight the need to protect cultural property during armed conflict. The images exhibited in Culture Under Attack highlight the impact of armed conflict on cultural heritage, and the efforts of organisations and individuals who strive to protect such heritage in these conflicts. They represent a call to action that these important laws be understood, implemented and enforced for the benefit of all humankind.
