art and words dedicated to the children of Palestine

Letters for Palestinian childhoods

Letters for Palestinian childhoods is an online and travelling in-person exhibition of letters, poems, and artwork dedicated to the children of Palestine. It aims to counter dehumanising narratives about Palestinians, showing solidarity by attending to the names, stories, experiences, dreams, and struggles of Palestinian children and the actions of the Western-backed Israeli state which are so violently shaping their lives.

Except Palestine: Town-Hall Discussion ( 4-6pm)

The panel focuses on the impact of what experts are calling a “textbook case of genocide” on Palestinian children and childhood. Panellists will explore how young Palestinians are both targeted and used by political Zionism to build, maintain, and justify the Israeli ethno-nation. Panelists will bring their expertise on childhood to discuss the implications for solidarity – both how the supposedly ultra deserving figure of the child as victim falls apart when it comes to Palestine and the problematics of tying solidarity movements to accounts of the exceptionalism of childhood.

This event is the fourth in a series of town-hall discussions, co-organised by UCL Middle East Research CentreSOAS Centre for Palestine StudiesLSE Human Rights and King’s College London.
