Ontmoet Palestina presents : One Night in Nablus (with Daoud Nassar (“Tent of Nations”)
Location: OT301, Overtoom 301, Amsterdam
Time: 20u00 – 3u00
In February Ontmoet Palestina will host the second edition of One Night in Nablus in OT301. For one night we will meet Palestine. A visit to Palestine is an intense experience. Central in our trips are the daily struggles that the Palestinians have to deal with, however, you will also be amazed by the resilience, hospitality and beautiful culture of the Palestinians. This night will be like a night you could experience in Palestine: full of politics and discussion but we will also enjoy the Palestinian food, music, and dance. We are delighted that the Palestinian farmer Daoud Nassar from Tent of Nations / Nassar Farm will be the main guest of the evening.
Tickets (€10) are sold at the door.
