Awami Art Collective (Lahore) is a group of concerned artists, academics and activists, who came together to engage citizens in a dialogue on violent extremism through public art. Awami Art Collective Members include: Ammara Khalid Media; Asad Changaizi Artist; Farida Batool Artist; Haider Ali Jan Artist; Marria Khan Artist; Mohsin Shafi Artist; Naira Mushtaq Artist; Rabia Hassan Artist; Raheem ul Haque Political Activist; Raza Khan Social Activist; Samra Mir Academic; Sehr Jalil Artist and Yasir Azeem Artist.

For LB01, Awami Roshni (light pyramid) served as a commentary on the entwining of structures and our ideological national construct. Emerging out of light, the installation was a symbol of evolution and hope.

Significant projects by Awami Art Collective include: Surkh Gulaban Day Mausam Wich Phulaan Day Rang Kaaley (Black Spring, 2016) and Hum jo Taareek Rahon Main Maray Gaey 2015.
