The Challenges for Palestinians in Giving Voice to their Stories
February 11, 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Thursday’s discussion will come after a showing of “I Shall Not Hate,” the story of the Gaza fertility doctor (nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize) who refuses to relinquish his commitment to coexistence, even after tragedy befalls his family during Operation Cast Lead.
Be part of the conversation. Mosaic Theater creates a space for audience-led conversations and talkbacks following nearly every show in the Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival. Facilitated by strong moderators, invited guests, experts, artists, community leaders, and local stakeholders, these discussions will allow audience members the opportunity to dive deeper into the conversation.
All are welcome, and all are encourage to participate. Talkbacks are a safe space to continue exploring the issues you already know, and begin to understand the issues you don’t.
