Special coverage: We're putting together the ultimate contemporary Arab mixtape, as we meet the artists creating revolutionary labours of love in an age of destruction and hatred.

Where, today, is that revolutionary hope which filled the streets in 2011?

In such desperate times of destruction, we turn to those who create. We look to those people who find the space in their hearts to create labours of love - yes, creativity and love are acts of revolution in an age of carnage and hatred.
 
We look to the artists. We look to the musicians. We look to all those for whom resistance to the brutal savagery of violence comes by forging a new cultural heritage.

It is a culture of resistance. It is culture as resistance.

The beat of the Spring goes on...
