I Am Palestine is the fifth in a series of exhibitions by Rogue Foundation featuring the work of children in conflict zones around the world, expanding on I Am Haiti, I Am Afghanistan and I Am Syria and I Am Congo.
In February we completed the I Am Palestine art project with the children of the Dheisheh refugee camp in collaboration with Laylac Center, a progressive community-based organization supporting children though creativity projects.
The children of Deheisheh in Palestine’s West Bank have never seen the Sea, even though it is only an hour drive away.
Never having painted before, the children were invited invited to express themselves for the first time with colors and paint what they imagined the sea looks like.
Their artwork will be exhibited at Rogue Space | Chelsea with 100% of proceeds being returned to Laylac Center to fund an art program in the hope that the children will experience one day in reality what they created in their paintings.
