Sounds like a great project, and yes, much needed, to give voice to the Palestinian perspective. Best wishes to you. I'd love to take up some similar line of work with the arts in Israel-Palestine. SFCG is a great organization. Can you tell me more about the directions of their work there? Salaam. David
