Voices from the City’s Eastern Neighborhoods
A virtual event on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021 at 7 PM Jerusalem time (GMT+2)
This past year, the city of Jerusalem has been on its own. No tourists, no pilgrims, and few out-of-town university students. For the first time the city is without guests, who have previously helped shape its culture and economy.
The stillness ever more underlines the division between the various communities in the city, in particular between its western and eastern parts. During the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve heard so much in the media about the “Other” but have had very few opportunities to hear from real people who live in these “other” communities.
A consortium of organizations active in Jerusalem invites you to hear about life in the city’s eastern parts, from three speakers:
Hiba Qawasmi, an Arabic teacher from Beit Hanina
Nasser Odeh, a human rights lawyer from Shuafat
Fuad Abu Hamed, a Jerusalemite social activist from sur baher
Join us for a conversation about life in Jerusalem during the pandemic and travel from one side of the city to the other. Hear about the most burning topics on the East Jerusalem agenda, and some thoughts about the city’s future
The event will take place on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021 at 7 PM Jerusalem time (GMT+2).
The link will be sent out on the morning of the event.
