"Gaza's Youth: Suspended Lives, Fading Opportunities

A lucky break - Adam Mghari:
The search for salvation is like getting a lucky break. When a stroke of luck stems from an imagination unsaturated with the tools of freedom, it represents man's quest for dynamic change in the shadows of a static path to apprehension. The repetition of this pattern brings man into a cycle of survival modes, hoping to catch dreams lingering in the air.

Fenced Off - Contemporary visual arts exhibition:
The art displayed in this exhibition is the work of twelve young artists from the Gaza Strip who were defined by the closure of the past 15 years. Inspired by this isolation, the artists were stimulated to create art using non-traditional means to embody their reality over the past 15 years.
What you will see is an attempt to answer questions posed by an entire generation longing for freedom, love, dignity, and much more, every day."

" Gaza’s Youth: Suspended Lives, Fading Opportunities

Gaza – A new online survey conducted by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) found that 9 out of 10 young people from Gaza who took the survey believe their lives are abnormal.

Two thirds of the respondents said they are dependent on their families for income, whilst 40% reported having no hope of finding a job opportunity in the next 15 years.
