The Children of Gaza: Register now!
Palestine Solidarity Campaign, The Hands Up Project and the National Education Union are thrilled to bring you this interactive webinar live from Gaza to mark UN World Children’s Day.
Featuring a live bilingual reading from Gazan artist Malak Mattar’s brand new children’s book Grandma’s Bird, we will be joined by Malak on the night along with Palestinian writer Haneen Jadalla who worked on the Arabic text of the book.
The book reflects the artist’s experiences of childhood in Palestine and tells the story of her beginnings as an artist during Israel’s 2014 assault on the Gaza Strip which killed over 2000 Palestinians. You’ll also get a chance to buy the otherwise sold-out limited edition book through PSC on the night.
Following this reading and open discussion, we will also showcase a live performance of “We Will Wait Until They Open The Gate”, a play performed live on Zoom on the night by pupils from UNRWA Beach Elementary School in Gaza.
Join us for this evening of art and performance led by young female Palestinian voices straight from Gaza.
