Summary

Art is a great form of expression. Rebuilding Alliance aims to bring together original artwork from individuals in Gaza seeking to share their stories with the outside world. This ongoing event raises money for Gaza and also allows for artist to directly benefit from their purchased work. The future of the show has already surpassed our expectations as it has gained attention from world renowned institutions such as, The Yerba Buena Art Center. Will you please support the future of this event?

Challenge

Artists in Gaza create as an outlet - trapped in an open-air prison, it can be difficult to communicate with the outside world. Their stories are often compressed into one-dimensional narratives told by people who have never walked in their shoes. The economy in Gaza is totally stagnated by the blockade, and so it can be difficult to support oneself as an artist.

Solution

By providing opportunities for young artists in Gaza to share their stories with the outside world, we hope to open channels for the international community to come to understand their struggle. Art is a language that connects us all, and carries the potential to convey rich emotions, important perspectives, and complex feelings. Sharing this art demonstrates the valuable context of the humanity and creativity of people in Gaza - they are more than a people under occupation.

Long-Term Impact

Showing the work of Gaza artists will provide them with financial support, exposure, and will raise awareness about the blockade. Their art will help people around the world to view Palestinians in Gaza in a new light - a colorful, creative, and vibrant one, rather than only what is shown in the media.
