What are you fighting for?

Creative Alliance | What are you fighting for?

“All of my greatest lessons came from the one thing fighters dread – getting hit.”    – Christopher Batten


Over the next few weeks at Creative Alliance we’re diving into where martial arts meets ART! 

For the Arnold Schwarzenegger fan, Can I Kick It? brings you a screening of Predator with DJ 2-Tone Jones LIVE mixing a new soundtrack in the room with you!

For the visual arts fan, Christopher Batten’s exhibition No Play Fighting opens with his latest series of portraits addressing the emotions of Baltimoreans who experience internal and external battles on a daily basis. Complete with boxing ring in the main gallery!

Interested in an actual martial arts lesson? Chris and Dereke Batten teach you the basics of martial arts. Be ready to throw strikes and join the training drills!
