Youth Visions of Jerusalem _____________________________________________________________________________________________
Short Films & Photography by Palestinian Youth, July 23-24, 2009 :: Jerusalem and Ramallah
“Youth Visions of Jerusalem” is a unique program of digital video, photography and storytelling workshops conducted by Voices Beyond Walls. The program supports Palestinian youth in expressing their cultural identity, personal narratives, and creative visions of Jerusalem, the Arab Cultural Capital in 2009.
The program was held over a 6-week period in June-July 2009 through trainings and workshops conducted with Palestinian volunteers and 25-30 youth (aged 10-16) in the Old City of Jerusalem and the Shufat refugee camp. The youth produced 6 video shorts (duration 4-10 mins each) depicting a range of fictional and documentary narratives set in Jerusalem.
