Al-Awda New York invites you back one more time for an evening of poetry, music, art and food, to celebrate the success of the Picture Balata exhibition at the Brecht Forum.

Join us on Tuesday, April 24th as we continue to celebrate cultural resistance with Palestinian poet Remi Kanazi and friends.

Don’t miss this opportunity to come view the photograph of Picture Balata, a project which puts the camera into the hands of the children born and raised under conditions of occupation in Palestine. Work is on display by Picture Balata participants ranging from ages 11 to 18, who photograph their situation as they live it in Balata Refugee Camp.
