About this project

 We are working to give a mixed Berlin audience the chance to 'feel' Palestine in its beauty, distinctiveness, and complexity - and we need your help! The festival showcases Palestinian stories, voices, and talents through a series of events ranging from photography, film, and literature to music and performances. The [zait wa: zaʕtar] Festival for Palestinian Arts and Culture will be unfolding from November 2020 -February 2021. A main team of 5 full-time idealists, supported by many more contributors and voluteers, is organizing the festival - find out more about us here

Our program will include, amongst other events, exhibition, panels and films

Despite the difficult situation the pandemic enforces on us, we have succeeded in making the festival happen, by finding alternative (bigger) venues, changing the itinerary, adapting to special covid-19-related requirement, and making the festival accessible for Covid-19 risk groups and a wider audience by filming, streaming and recording - so please help us making it to the finishing line.
Contribute to adding the last technical details to ensure the smooth execution of the festival
– because in times of a pandemic, the arts need your support more than ever, and our festival needs your contributions – so please help us with your donation today! 
And your money would not be lost in case of increased Covid-19-related restrictions, as some parts of the festival would be taken online and others postponed to next spring.
