Started when Rod Cox travelled to Gaza with the Aid Convoy in February 2009.
More than fifty pieces of Art, some funny, some tragic, many beautiful, together
with commentary and supplementary information booklet are the basis of this exhibition.
Additionally short videos will replace text in some locations, and a transit size
van will act as a micro cinema for shorts about Palestine where practicable.
The exhibition was collected by Rod in March and April 2009, and displaying the work
in Europe is the result of a promise made to the schools and Youth Groups that he
visited. The exhibition is intended to educate us in the West, and provide a psychological
boost to those involved in Palestine, helping them to believe that they are not isolated
and restoring some self-esteem. The project is supported in this regard by Gaza Community
Health, The Gaza Ministry of Education, UNESCO, and various Youth Groups and NGOs.
