From Palestinian Art: Illustrated Tales and Interactive Activities

In collaboration with Tamer Institute for Community Education

Al-Hallaj’s Fantastical Mural, The Purple Girl, The Urn that Turned into a Galaxy and Samia’s Colourful Sky are all tales inspired by the lives of prominent Palestinian artists: Samia Halaby, Vera Tamari, Tamam al-Akhal, Mustafa al-Hallaj. Apart from the late Mustafa al-Hallaj, the real heroines of the stories will be joining us.

At the Palestinian Museum, you will spend a day filled with knowledge, exploration and fun through a series of activities including storytelling, showing the artists artworks and illustrations. Kids can move between different interactive stations inspired by the stories:
- Etching and printing workshop (inspired by the works of Mustafa al-Hallaj)

“Tales from Palestinian Art” is a project launched by Tamer Institute for Community Education to develop the visual arts field related to children and young adult literature in Palestine. The project produced four illustrated children stories inspired by the lives of four prominent Palestinian artists: Samia Halaby, Vera Tamari, Tamam al-Akhal and Mustafa al-Hallaj written by Ibtisam Barakat, Huda al-Shawwa and Rana Anani. 

This project is supported by A.M. Qattan Foundation, as part of its project “Visual Arts: A Flourishing Field” (VAFF)  funded by Sweden.
