To commemorate Nakba Day, from 15 to 19 May 2019, What the Fattoush? in partnership with Chrome & Black and sponsored by Sailor Jerry presents Paint Palestine, a charity exhibition of bespoke works from urban artists at The Hoxton Basement, 12-18 Hoxton Street.

About

Paint Palestine will display over 40 bespoke works from street artists, graffiti artists, sign painters,  illustrators and filmmakers. All artwork (including prints from artists such as Camille Walala, and Egle Zvirblyte) will be auctioned with up to 50% going to the artist and at least 50% donated equally between Palestine focussed NGOs SkatePal and Alrowwad.

 

Visitors will be able to buy clothing and accessories from Hype Peace, Sareh Boom and SkatePal as well as prints and zines. General admission is £5 or £3 for concessions.

 

The first 100 visitors will be given a lucky dip prize with items donated from What the Fattoush?, Chrome & Black, SkatePal, Serah Boom, Hype Peace, Club Mexicana, Biff’s Jack Shack and more.

 

Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe) commemorates the day where 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or  forced to flee from their homes, following the 1948 war. Involuntarily pushed into refugee status, Nakba Day seeks to support the now millions of Palestinian refugees in the right of return to their land.

 

Jessica Howe and Megan Gent - curators of Paint Palestine and co-founders of plant-based, Palestinian food company What the Fattoush? - were taught to cook authentic Middle Eastern food by camp residents when volunteering at refugee camps across Europe and Palestine.  What the Fattoush? works with charities advocating Palestinian human rights and works in partnership with SkatePal, an NGO supporting young people in Palestine through skateboarding.
