Art is hope: Finding Place

Gaza has been occupied or under restrictions since 1948. Syria continues to be destroyed by brutal armed conflict. Palestinians and Syrians have become the two largest refugee populations on the planet. After escaping death and oppression in their homeland, children are no longer in a hiding place. They embark upon a journey to finding place. FINDING PLACE explores the imaginations and aspirations of youth from Syria and Gaza who have been forced to flee their homes. Works were created as part of an ongoing partnership between Mercy Corps and aptART to bring street art projects inside the confines of refugee camps and post-conflict zones. Exhibition opens to the public September 17th and on view in Portland, Oregon until December 31st, 2015. This project was implemented with support from Kaynouna Arab Art Therapy.
