"Occupation & Resistance - Photos from Palestine"

You are warmly invited to:

“Occupation & Resistance- Photos from Palestine”

Showcasing both the daily experience of Palestinians living under occupation and the joint Palestinian-Israeli non-violent resistance to the Israeli state and military, ‘Occupation & Resistance- Photos from Palestine’ features courageous images from the front line of the struggle for justice in Palestine.

These moving images are the work of the widely published group ‘ActiveStills’, a collective of photographers based in Israel, who believe in the power of photography as a tool for social justice. Formed in 2005, they have since held and participated in exhibitions in Munich, Olympia, Bil’in (West Bank), Tel Aviv, Toronto, Montreal, Malmo, Lund and Amsterdam.

Events will be held during the week of the exhibition by local groups campaigning on the issue to raise awareness and mobilise solidarity with Palestinians.

The exhibition opens Tuesday 2nd Feb 6pm
Then open Wed-Sat 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-3pm
Thistle Hall, corner of Cuba and Arthur Streets, Wellington
