Every day life in the Occupied Territories

A fascinating and thought-provoking exhibition of photographs taken by Palestinian children of life in their home village in the Occupied Territories is touring schools in the London Borough of Sutton.

The photographic exhibition ‘Everyday Lives in the Occupied Territories’, showcases photographs taken by Palestinian children as part of a project undertaken by international volunteers on the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel – an initiative of the World Council of Churches, managed by Quaker Peace and Social Witness. The exhibition has been collated by local resident, Ecumenical Accompanier and Sutton for Peace and Justice member, Doris Richards.

On Monday 27 Feb, Greenshaw High School hosted the opening of the exhibition attended by the Mayor of Sutton, seen here with Doris Richards.

The exhibition will be hosted by a number of primary and secondary schools across the Borough during March, April and May.

If your school, community group, place of worship or meeting place would like to host the exhibition, please contact Doris : email to dorisric@blueyonder.co.uk

The exhibition is a joint initiative of Sutton for Peace and Justice and the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
