Get creative

Art the Arms Fair

Art the Arms Fair will hold a mass, en plein air art event on 9th September 2017.

At 10:00am, artists will come armed with canvases, clay, and their creativity to the site of the fair to Art the Arms Fair. All art and artists welcome from painting to performance, sculptors to satirists.

All work produced will be taken to a London Space to be shown alongside other donated art works for an exhibition coinciding with the DSEI Arms Fair 12th-15th September 2017. Work will be sold to support the work of Campaign Against Arms Trade. More info on the Art The Arms Fair website.

  • Cardboard
  • Fabrics
  • Paints and pens – do not bring spray paint
  • Brushes and palates
  • Buttons and sequins

If you are able to bring any of these things, let us know at info(at)stopthearmsfair*org*uk.


Want to get involved in some theatrical interventions? Email theatre(at)stopthearmsfair*org*uk to join a crew who plan to create a theatre piece for the week of action.

Arming the World

#ArmingTheWorld is a performance collaboration between Ice & FireTeatro Vivo and the designer takis.

The Paveway missile, the Tactica Armoured Car, CS gas and the Eurofighter will form the centre of a larger performance intervention that will take to the streets in the week of the arms fair in areas around our partner’s buildings (w/c 11th September).

During the week of DSEI the ‘#ArmingTheWorld: Outreach Team’ will take to the streets to enter people’s daily lives, provoking new ways of thinking about the arms trade and its impact both here and abroad.
