PALETTES OF PALESTINE
I am Yara I live in the city of Khan Yunis, like all other children of the world there are questions inside me that haunt me. I always look for answers to them which make me draw my life as I wish.
At the Academy in Khan Yunis, not only do children come into contact with art and artistic techniques, it is also one of the few places in Gaza where they can think and speak freely and where they can develop away from the confines of their closed environment and community. A place where like-minded children come together, share their experiences of life in Gaza and are given tools to express themselves through various art forms.
Within the Palettes of Palestine project, teenagers from Gaza were asked to share a message with Brussels in the summer of 2023. The result is a small exhibition with 11 works in mixed media. The voices of these young people are have a hard time in finding a way out of Gaza, but in this way their personal stories are still seen and heard.
The expo can be visited at GC De Rinck in Anderlecht from 29/11/2023 till 31/01/2024, from Monday till Friday, 09h-17h.

The money goes to the HOPE Foundation’s Cultural Emergency Fund, which assists local artists and teachers who support children suffering from the effects of war and devastation.
