In 2012 we took part in a collaborative art project with students from UNWRA schools in Gaza. We were then delighted when Jehan and Mohammed, their teachers from Gaza,  came to stay with us in London to help finalise the project. 

Students in Gaza had sent us their pictures of everyday life which our students then transferred onto a set of plates. The plates were displayed at Leighton House as part of the Nour Festival. Together we then 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 drawings are on display at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

We will be posting pictures from the project on our social media over the next week.
