PalFest - Palestine Festival of Literature
The written word, loved throughout the Middle East, is especially treasured by Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and around the world. The Palestine Festival of Literature brings Palestinian and international artists together for audiences across Palestine, organises cultural festivals with international and local participation, and facilitates workshops with Palestinian students in co-operation with academics. Rather than remaining in one place, the festival is held in several locations throughout Palestine. Last year’s festival wrapped up in the Solidarity Tent of Umm Kamal in Silwan, where an open-mic night for poets and authors was held, as well as a performance by Dam.
