An evening in honour of Juliano Mer-Khamis, 29/5/1958 – 4/4/2011
London, Wednesday 20 April, 6:30
The murder of Juliano Mer-Khamis has been met with shock and disbelief by all who knew him and his work. The son of a Jewish mother and a Palestinian father, Juliano is best known for his work with the children of Jenin refugee camp and for his cultural resistance activism, particularly with the Freedom Theatre he co-founded.
On the evening of Wednesday 20th April, we will meet in London to hear more about his life and activities, to remember him, and to think of ways of continuing his work.
