The Arab British Centre, Arts Canteen and Shubbak Festival are joined by Zaytoun CIC, The Sonic Agent and Saqi Books to invite you to Gather For Gaza to raise money for urgent humanitarian aid by Medical Aid for Palestinians.
A message from the organisers “We have been watching with horror and broken hearts the events unfolding in Gaza. As organisations dedicated to platforming the arts, heritage and cultures of the Arab world and beyond, we have joined forces to present an evening of music, poetry, a healing circle and stalls in solidarity with Palestine and to raise funds for relief efforts in Gaza. At this painful time we look to art and the coming together of all communities for solidarity, action, grieving and healing and hope you will join us this Thursday 26 October.
We have been committed to collectively organising a space to come together and raise funds for the urgent humanitarian work by Medical Aid for Palestinians on the ground in Gaza.”
