Bethlehem Cultural Festival: Gaza Witness

28 November '23 at 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

An evening of readings, shared experiences and testimonies from those in Gaza and those who know Gaza.

While our screens show horror upon horror, we take time to listen to the people of Gaza in their own words. Thanks to networks of family and friends in Gaza and beyond, we hear personal testimonies from those under attack and bear witness to the suffering and resilience of Palestinian people and Palestinian culture everywhere. Actors and speakers read poetry and fiction written under the bombs, and we hear stories of Gaza before the latest trauma, celebrating life despite the threat of violence and death.

With speakers including Ahmed Najar, Palestinian actor and playwright from Gaza; Tasneim Zyada, British-Palestinian actor and spoken word poet; Caitlin Procter, a political anthropologist who teaches at the Migration Policy Centre; Louisa Waugh, journalist and author of Meet Me in Gaza (Saqi Books); and featuring musical performance by composer and concert flautist Wissam Boustany.
