art and words dedicated to the children of Palestine

Letters for Palestinian childhoods

Letters for Palestinian childhoods is an exhibition of letters, poems, and artwork dedicated to the children of Palestine – currently online and soon to be a travelling exhibition. 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.

Hola niños y niñas de Palestina

Hello boys and girls of Palestine

I am Candela, I am writing this letter to you from school. Every day I see the news and I see your country, the children, the people in the hospital, I say to myself how lucky I am that in my country there is no war. I would like my country to help you but I am not the one who governs. But with this letter I ask for peace in the world, not only for you, but also for all the people who are going through war and I hope that my letter reaches you and that the wars all over the world come to an end.
