(We Are) Light Catchers shows light recorded by participants using wearable sensors. Bring your light to the public space by borrowing a sensor and adding your colours to the collaborative light sculpture. Your light will travel to other cities around the world with the nomadic Light Catchers sculpture, mixing with light already collected from Germany and China.

Wein A Ramallah Season 2016

Ramallah Summer Festival

August 15 to 23, 2016

Ramallah Summer Festival is an annual event that revives an old tradition and celebrates the city’s history and contemporary role in nurturing cultural activities and the arts. The festival highlights a long tradition of artistic expression through various city venues and public spaces, and also acts as a platform to reinforce the partnerships between the numerous active institutions.

Ramallah Summer Festival 2016 will take place in the midst of “Wein A Ramallah” Season, a new concept initiated by Ramallah Municipality, which lasts from early April to October.

The theme “From Us and From Within” echoes metaphorically the festival philosophy of highlighting Palestinian artistic talent, whether local or from the diaspora. In addition, the festival hosts other Arabic and international artists to strengthen the fruitful cooperation between the cities that have been twinned with Ramallah Municipality as well as with friends from near and far.
