Palestinian Self-Representation and Why It Matters
July 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$5 – $100
Join Jewish Voice for Peace DC (JVP DC) as we delve into the importance of Palestinian self-representation and the power dynamics inherent in storytelling. This event is a JVP DC fundraiser for the DC Palestinian Film & Arts Festival.
We’ll gather our resources to help make this important festival, which showcases the range and complexity of Palestinian identities and narratives, possible – and at the same time, we’ll learn more about why Palestinians are reclaiming space to tell their own stories. The program will include a short film screening and a discussion moderated by DCPFAF Managing Director Nusayba Hammad and Co-Director and Head Curator Michael Kamel.
