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.

Fragments of Home

Tamara Senekar

May 25, 2016 - June 16, 2016 

Fragments of Home is a multi-media exhibition and a movement through the artist's consideration of the landscape of Palestine and the role it plays in the cultural narrative. It is abstract in essence and multidisciplinary by definition, presenting a variety of forms that consider the social and natrual space in the contemporary Palestinian context through gold and lavender mosaics, a video installation, calligraphy in embroidery hoops, and Diwani pieces on clear perspex.
