Lajee Center and HOPING Foundation Presents
The Art of Resistance
Lajee Center in association with HOPING Foundation presents an evening of dance, music, film and art by young Palestinian refugees.
This one-night-only event is the finale of Lajee Center’s UK Arts & Cultural Tour which includes events from Aberdeen all the way south to London. Lajee is bringing its unique blend of Dabka (traditional Palestinian folk dance), along with film and photography exhibitions produced by child and youth artists within the Lajee Arts & Media Unit (supported by HOPING Foundation) to London to follow on from the 2010 sold-out event at Amnesty International Human Rights Centre.
Laje’s Dabka Troupe has toured the UK twice before, in 2008 and 2010, and also performed internationally in Belgium, Egypt and Syria. The photography and film produced by children and youth within Lajee Arts & Media unit has won national and international awards, and photography exhibitions have been held in 9 countries across 4 continents.
Special guests will also be appearing live on the night, and refreshments will be served.
