A Child’s View from Gaza comes to Vancouver March 9 - 15, 2012!
Don’t miss this exhibition of Palestinian children’s art!
The Vancouver Child’s View from Gaza Committee is very excited to bring to Vancouver A Child’s View from Gaza, an exhibition of 25 children’s art pieces. These pieces are part of the 75-piece exhibition that was created in 2009 by the children of Gaza who witnessed the destruction of Operation Cast Lead and who participated in after-school children’s therapy programs. “Cast Lead,” Israel’s December 2008/January 2009 attack on a virtually unarmed Gaza, killed 1400 Palestinians, including more than 350 children.
