A Reflection Session on the Palestinian Novel “Velvet”
12/Sep@14:00 - 16:00
Be part of this cultural session and reflect on the Palestinian Novel “Velvet”!
This training comes as part of Access Beyond Barriers Project which aims to enhance the social participation of marginalized groups, in order to formulate public policies that are responsive to youth’s and women’s needs. The project also aims to enhance cooperation between youth groups and CBOs in Area C and in Palestinian refugee camps, and to develop the internal procedures and practices of these associations in order to ensure good governance practices. Thus, social and cultural cohesion will be increased amongst the different social components and collective Palestinian identity will be promoted.
