A Luta Continua

The Struggle Continues

As the catch cry of the FRELIMO rebels in Mozambique, A Luta Continua has been taken up around the world. The phrase sums up the ways in which struggles change and are passed on, providing hope for new generations who carry the fire within them.

In this space we celebrate the importance of non-violent protest in the Tasmanian cultural landscape, and the significance of Art as a form of protest and as a rallying call. Artworks and objects gathered from an extraordinary community of Tasmanian artists and activists, explore stories from Aboriginal, environmental and human rights struggles in particular.

The phrase ends with Vitória é Certa – Victory is Certain.
