About the Delegation

Join this delegation to explore the creative ways Palestinian communities employ arts and culture as a means of resilience and resistance.

Meet Palestinians and Israelis making and using visual art, performance art, and more. And learn about the importance of other creative tools for community resilience, such as farming, technology, and education.

As with all Eyewitness Palestine delegations, you will also meet additional Palestinians and Israelis working for peace and justice and visit important historical and religious sites.

Each Eyewitness Palestine delegation itinerary is unique, but every trip features meetings with Palestinian and Israeli activists committed to a future of peace with justice.

We prioritize grassroots voices and diverse perspectives not often heard in North America. We reach deeper to find alternative images that give a more complete picture of Palestine/Israel.
