 Crossing Borders Collage2


We have been working with students from UNWRA schools in Gaza on a collaborative art project. Students in Gaza sent us their pictures of everyday life which our students then transferred to a set of plates. The plates are now on display at Leighton House as part of this year's Nour Festival. Together with Jehan and Mohammed we made books showing the original pictures, the plates and descriptive text both in Arabic and English. We titled the book 'Crossing Borders - A Festival of Plates'.

 Photographs of the plates and the original paintings are on display on the first floor walkway at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
