Nablus – Palestine

September 2013


In a land clothed with sorrow we were received with stories of generosity, hope, humour, friendship, longing and endurance.

If ever there was a place where land and people were so intimately connected, so in love with each other, it is Palestine.

In September of 2013, a core team of WildWorkers travelled to Nablus in the Occupied Territories of Palestine. We ran two weeks of workshops both in the City and in Old and New Askar Refugee Camps. The workshops culminated in an evening of music, film and stories; an expression of an intense love of place, a showcase of brilliant local talent to use the medium of music, story telling, performance and downright showmanship as an act of self affirmation.

We are working towards a return visit to Nablus to continue the work.
