Poetry for Palestine in Venice

      April 18 and 19th
      Giardini Vaporetto

      On April 18th and 19th in Venice, in collaboration with Artists Against Apartheid, Writers Against the War on Gaza (WAWOG), and the Kamel Lazaar Foundation, we will be hosting readings from in and around Palestine just outside the Giardini — on the canal just opposite the Giardini vaporetto stop.

      Poets in the inaugural “Gaza Reader” include Maya Abu Al Hayat, Zaina Alsous, Fady Joudah, Mahmoud Darwish, Mosab Abu Toha, Naomi Shihab Nye, Hala Alyan, Mohammed El Kurd, Carolina Ebeid, Noor Hindi, Refaat Alareer, Etel Adnan, Eileen Myles, and many more.

      Bespoke maritime flags have been made by the artists Nicole Eisenman and Rosalind Nashashibi.

      The Gaza Reader is illustrated with drawings from artists Aml El Nakhala, Hazem Harb, and Adel El Taweel.
