Beirut Inauguration & Exhibition Opening 'Sea of Stories’
Join us for the inaugration of Qalandiya International in Beirut and the exhibition opening of 'Sea of Stories'
Where should the ships sail after the last shore? ‘Sea of Stories’ explores the displacements and imagined returns of the Palestinian community in Lebanon throughout the Mediterranean Sea. For Palestinians in Lebanon, Palestine exists at the southern end of the shores we inhabit. It is no coincidence that the vast majority of Palestinian camps and gatherings lay on coastal cities, and some fall directly on the shore. The Mediterranean Sea is a site that bears testament to these journeys of displacement as well as possible routes of return.
