The Director, Musheir El-Farra, will introduce the films and take questions after their screening.

Being Young in Palestine

Date: Monday 30th May
Time: 7 pm
Location: Jesus Lane Quaker Meeting House, 12 Jesus Lane, Cambridge 

Youth workers from Palestine are here as guests of Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association. They are part of CADFA’s ‘Building Hope’ project. Growing up in occupied Palestine means facing systematic discrimination, denial and abuse of your basic human rights, continuous surveillance and the raw violence of home demolitions, detentions, injuries, and deaths. How do young Palestinians cope? Come and hear from youth workers visiting from Jenin and Ramallah. And help build support for justice for the Palestinian people.

Help CADFA raise the money to bring Palestinian youth workers and young people to the UK this summer to meet young people, share experiences together and tell each other about their lives. Please donate to the Just giving page on the QR code or at:

Talk: Drama out of a Crisis – Gaza Project – 12th November

Venue: Friends Meeting House Jesus Lane
Time: 7.30 pm Tuesday 12 November 2019

Nick Bilbrough founder of the Hands Up project will be in conversation with Jeremy Harmer, English language teaching author practitioner and trainer. Nick will give an illustrated talk about this fantastic project which engages Gazan children in drama and storytelling.

In 2014, using very simple video conferencing tools, Nick started connecting online to a small group of children in a library in Beit Hanoun, Gaza for weekly storytelling sessions. From these humble beginnings, the Hands Up Project now works with over thirty different groups in Gaza, in the Occupied West Bank, and in Zaatari refugee camp for Syrian children in Jordan. As many as 500 children a week now connect to volunteers around the world who work in collaboration with the local teacher to tell stories to each other, to play games and to do other activities to help them bring the English that they are learning come to life.

Please reserve your (free) place here to give us an idea of numbers

Hands Up is an excellent project teaching children in Gaza English
