Organised in conjunction with Highland Palestine, join us for a free talk with Najib Joe Hakim a documentary photographer and artist based in San Francisco (CA).
Born in Lebanon and raised in the United States, he discovered his Palestinian roots during his college years. This realisation led to his first visit to Palestine and changed the course of his studies, work and life toward efforts for the attainment of Palestinian rights.
The talk ask questions about diaspora and belonging.
How and why do Palestinians living outside Palestine maintain ties to and aspirations for Palestine; and how do they reconcile this with life in a country whose political culture is so profoundly hostile to those aspirations?
We look forward to seeing you!
