08/01/2017 BDCC Project”
We have been asked by the organising committee of the Balfour Declaration Centenary Campaign (BDCC) in the UK to put together an exhibition documenting British complicity in the gradual demise of Palestine since 1917. We will be using images of Palestine under the British Mandate to the present day, so if anyone has suitable photographs from this period please send them on.
This exhibition is now complete and was displayed as part of the JUST Festival’s, Balfour thread during this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, where it caused some controversy due to constant vandalisation by pro-Israeli members of the public. At one point police demanded that some pictures be taken down. Our subsequent complaint to the police authority was subsequently upheld and a full apology was issued.
The exhibition has also been shown in the village of Al Mas’ra, near Bethlehem, and will appear at the Universities of East Anglia and Birzeit during Israel Apartheid Week this year.
3/1/2017 New Project “Displaced”
We are currently working on a project entitled “Displaced”. This seeks to explore the experience of living as a Palestinian refugee or displaced person in Palestine and the diaspora.
We showed this throughout August in this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and then took it to Inverness and Lochinver in the north of Scotland, where it was received to great acclaim.
In December 2017 this exhibition also appeared in Gaza City, and we hope to show it in Ramallah in due course.
It has recently appeared once more in Edinburgh this time in the Upright Gallery during January, and will then be on show throughout the month of February at Arbroath Library in the east of Scotland.
