To end our Israeli Apartheid Week 2016 activities we are proud to present another day showcasing the wonderful culture of Palestine. From 2pm on Sunday 13th March we’ll be hosting another of our ever popular events allowing people to experience the rich Palestinian culture of resistance. As the celebrated Palestinian singer Mohammed Assaf has said, “the occupation tries to kill every beautiful thing” – it is for this reason that Palestinians struggle to keep their cultural traditions (old and new) alive and vibrant. We aim to bring a little of this important aspect of the Palestinain people’s ongoing resistance to Israeli apartheid to audiences in Ireland.

We are hosting a day-long series of events including exhibitions, poetry and musical performances, discussion, film and even a limited amount of Palestinian snacks.

 

Exhibition 1 – Handala and the Life and Work of Naji Al Ali

A selection of the work of Palestinian cartoonist Naji Al Ali (1938-1987).

 

Exhibition 2 – The Art of Solidarity: Posters from the IPSC Archive

An exhibition of a selection of political posters produced by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
