Palestine @70
Amos Trust is proud to support Palestine @70: A Celebration of Contemporary Palestinian Culture at RADA Studios in London from 14th – 20th May.

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba or “catastrophe”.  @70: A Celebration of Contemporary Palestinian Culture is a week-long festival of theatre, dance, films, and talks commemorating the Palestinian experience of dispossession and loss of a homeland.

The Shroud Maker
There’s a whole host of events and performances including a week-long run of The Shroud Maker written by Gazan and Amos trustee, Ahmed Masoud. Loosely based on a real-life character still living in Gaza, The Shroud Maker is a dark satire telling one woman’s story of survival.

At 6.30pm on Wednesday 16th May, there will be a special performance of The Shroud Maker as part of @70 which will include a short presentation about Amos Trust’s work in Palestine including our Change The Record campaign. It would be great to see some of you there – tickets are available here. Please do check the @70 website for full details of the rest of the programme.

Palestine @70 is a creative response to decades of injustice. It has been jointly organised by Amnesty International UK, the Hoping Foundation, the Palestine Solidarity CampaignAl  Zaytouna Dance Theatre and Amos Trust.
