Suwarna Photography Show on view at The Jerusalem Fund
Friday, February 3rd - Friday, March 2nd

"Suwarna, meaning “our pictures” in Arabic, is an exhibition of photography taken by the participants in “Triple Exposure,” a public art project at Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) in Nablus in the Northern West Bank, in which Palestinian boys and girls, ages 10 to 16, use their cameras to capture their homes, neighborhoods, schools, friends, hobbies, and daily moments of beauty."

TYO is an American, non-governmental organization that works in disadvantaged areas of the Middle East, enabling children, youth and parents to realize their potential as healthy, active and responsible family and community members.
