A project in collaboration with The Palestinian Museum about the meaning of the coast within the Palestinian narrative.
Children in the coastal area's Gaza and Akka follow a two week arts-program in which they transform their thoughts into poetry, learn calligraphy to write down their poems and then make wet-origami sculptures out of the scripted papers.
Their stories and creations will come together in a large art installation which will be exhibited in the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit during their Palestinian Shores Exhibition opening in the summer of 2021.
With great pleasure and excitement we announce the opening of the first Breakdance Academy in Gaza!
Since many years HOPE has been collaborating with Breakdancer and gymnastics teacher Myuz.
Myuz spends most of his free time teaching the children in the community how to safely stand on their heads.
With the support of HOPE he will now be able to move from the streets to a well prepared and safe space where he and two other trainers can teach the children on a regular basis.
