Suspended Dreams - Assaf Al-Kharti
To be strong enough to face the difficulties of life. All dreams and ambitions are shattered when they hit the rock of reality, but you will find yourself accompanied with scraps of resilience, and you will eventually overcome life's pitfalls.

The youth in Gaza have gone through many years of isolation, during which they have experienced all kinds of loss, helplessness and need. But they have resisted, demonstrated perseverance, and unveiled glimmers of hope and success. To this moment, they stand proudly and continue to show unprecedented resilience and steadfastness, confident and hopeful of a better future.

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."

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.
