Postcards from Palestine, by Louis Bockner

May 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $15

A Presentation of Writings and Images from the Occupied West Bank

Join award-winning photographer and journalist Louis Bockner for an evening of stories from his recent trip to Palestine. Louis will be presenting photographs and personal journal entries that offer reflections on his experience volunteering for Community Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in Hebron, a city in the occupied West Bank, in December of 2022.

The event will also feature a collaborative performance by poet Zaynab Mohammed and musician Bessie Wapp as well as a presentation from Sid Shniad of Independent Jewish Voices Canada, a Jewish-Canadian organization that envisions a just peace in Palestine and Israel based on equality and human rights.

All profits from this event will go towards the Palestine office of CPT. CPT is a global peace organization with offices in Columbia, Iraqi-Kurdistan, Canada, Lesvos and Palestine that believes violence is rooted in systemic structures of oppression. They have had an office in Hebron, Palestine, since 1995.
