Art of Solidarity
Art of Solidarity was cofounded by Nicaraguan-­American artist and educator Maria Gabriela Aldana and US­-based filmmaker Aleks Martray in 2007, producing community­ media documentaries and murals in Nicaragua ever since. In partnership with the Maryland Institute College of Art, the program has produced over a dozen film, media and mural collaborations between North American and Nicaraguan artists and community groups.

AoS was developed out of a public high school arts classroom in Baltimore, Maryland as Bmore Cultured from 2004-2008.
