The Public Outreach Program aims to promote Palestinian contemporary culture and life through creative encounters that target primarily the younger generation of artists and performers. It is a platform to showcase young talent in music, art, literature and cinema, as well as presenting a rich program of talks and performances about the city and its history, interpolated by an assortment of culinary activities involving local chefs and non-professional members of the community. Artists, writers, historians, musicians and performers are invited to give public performances including talks, discussions, readings, shows and film screenings with the aim to bring together community members and creative individuals in a shared space for experimentation, entertainment and free expression.

Live art disrupts all kinds of borders, from the cultural to the geo-political. Alex Eisenberg screened Dangerous Border Crossings, a film program he curated with the Live Art Development Agency. This program presents performance documentation from key artists who have explored the often complex and dangerous zone of the border. The title of this event comes from Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s book Dangerous Border Crossers (2000) and is in collaboration with Live Art Development Agency and International Academy of Art Palestine (IAAP).
