Sights & Sounds from Day 1


What an amazing opening night! We kicked off with a special Friday Tonic event programmed by Gizella Ojadi. For the first half, poems by Mahmoud Darwish and other works by Palestinian writers were read by young actors, Emerging Artists in Residence and other young people from the Street Genius project. In the second half was the wonderful Reem Kelani performing with classical jazz pianist, Bruno Heinen.

Were you in the audience, what did you think?

Here’s a recording of Reem and some photos I took during the evening.

See you soon,
