Biographical / Historical

Qalandiya International is an art festival held every two years across cities and villages in Palestine. Founded in 2012, the festival features Palestinian and international artists and their work in exhibitions, talks, performances, workshops, and other events. The theme for the festival in 2018 was "Solidarity." Artists struggled to participate in all of the activities throughout Israel and Palestine because of restrictions on their travel.
