Palestine Festival of Literature 2013

The PalFest 2013 Report is now online and publicly accessible
 A central aim of  Palfest [Palestine Festival of Literature] is to overcome the constraints of occupation; to create links between international artists and Palestinian artists and audiences. Having succeeded in bringing the festival to Gaza for the first time in 2012, this year we ran PalFest across all of Palestine. One group of international artists crossed the Rafah border from Egypt into Gaza. A second group traveled throughout the West Bank, Jerusalem, and, for  the first  time, Haifa. In this way, workshops, cultural meetings, and public events connecting international writers with Palestinian artists and audiences  were  held   throughout   historical   Palestine
