The Ma’an project began with a residential for leaders from France, the UK and Palestine, in Knighton, on the borders of England and Wales. It was a very long drive for the group from the airport, but good to find a lovely welcome from kind local people (here, Chris and her mum) who had cooked a delicious meal.

People who have visited Palestine usually don’t forget what they see, and last year’s CADFA youth visitors were no exception. Good luck to Samiha who has just finished her BTech in Textile Design at a Camden college, and made a final exhibition of work on a model of the Israeli Separation Wall that brutally divides Abu Dis. Her pieces incorporate images and issues from Palestine into her work.
