A panel of speakers who have been to and campaign for Palestine which includes:
- Ava Hunt has worked on a new theatre piece which uses multi-media and is a one woman performance of “The Kites Are Flying” based on Michael Morpurgo’s book for children. It was performed at the Nottingham Playhouse and Derby Theatre. The story is of a Television Reporter who makes friends with a Palestinian boy, Said, in a land where friendship has no barriers. The piece used footage filmed in the West Bank and was a
companion piece to "I'm No Hero" and by the same artistic team. The development of this project also included drama workshops with children in multi cultural schools in Derby City, and travelling to the West Bank to work with children in refugee camps.
