Young Eyes,” a series of drawings by Palestinian teenagers who lived through last year's Israel-Gaza conflict, is exhibited at
London's P21 gallery, from 7-22 August as part of “Gaza on Gaza,” a wider
exhibition of work by Palestinian artists.
Young Eyes” was organized by The Culture and Free Thought Association (CFTA),
an organization which provides therapeutic activities for children and young
people. After the ceasefire the teenagers, supervised by CFTA, went out to
shelters to meet other children and listen to their stories. These stories and
discussions, their own experiences and what they heard on the news and from
within their communities, inspired the illustrations on display.
provides vital support to young people giving them the opportunity to learn,
play and grow their talents in as safe a space as can be provided. The
organization encourages them to express themselves and fulfill their dreams to
become artists, writers, musicians or actors - and to join together and use
their skills to ensure that their voices are heard.
