People who have saved this event:


Qalandiya International (QI) was founded in 2012 as a collaborative contemporary art event that takes place every two years in Palestinian cities and villages. This year Qalandiya International is expanding to include its programme beyond Palestine to reach Beirut, Amman and London.


Alongside the series of other projects taking place across different venues in London, The Mosaic Rooms will host a one day symposium bringing together a diverse group of architects, artists, filmmakers, academics and professionals discussing the theme ‘This Sea is Mine’. This theme will be an entry point for contemplating and exploring concepts of return and refuge in both Palestine and the region. Unpacked by the different participants, the sea will be a medium to navigate through as they seek to question their role within the complex political and economic situation in the region.

A selection of participants from the exhibition will present their work, which will open up the exploration of themes exhibited by a round-table discussion panel.
