Artwork Drawn by Children from Gaza to be Exhibited in Boise

“A Child’s View from Gaza”

Drawings created by children in Gaza depicting the horrors, experiences and emotions generated by Operation Cast Lead

For the month of January 2012, Voices for Palestine will be sponsoring the exhibition of “A Child’s View from Gaza” in downtown Boise. This is an incredible opportunity for our community to view the experiences of children in the Gaza Strip. It is a glimpse into the mind of a child living under a violent occupation.

“A Child’s View from Gaza” is an exhibit featuring drawings created by children living in the Gaza Strip. All experienced the trauma of “Operation Cast Lead;” Israel’s 23 days of bombardment and invasion of Gaza during December 2008 and January 2009.

The drawings in this exhibit were created by children ages seven to fourteen. The exhibit expresses the children’s experiences and hopes for the future. Viewing their drawings is a heart wrenching experience. The drawings are a call for a world of peace, justice and equality for the children of Gaza and the world.

Below is a video showcasing images from the exhibit. Please go to our Local Events page for exhibition location and dates as well as special coinciding activities.
