We know the struggles. We know the politics. We know the pain. Do we really know the talent of the people?
It is time to celebrate the contributions Palestinians make to society through their art, film, food, products, knowledge, literature and their music. Our evening concert will especially highlight their vibrant hip hop scene by featuring the amazing talent of Shadia Mansour, along with AOK, Cousin, People’s Poets, Mazzi, and G.O.
Humanserve aims to share the Palestinian heritage with Albertans and to inform the Canadian public about humanitarian aspects of Palestinians and Lebanese in the Middle East. We endeavor to develop mutual ties with all stakeholders interested in the humanitarian aspects of disadvantaged populations in this area. One of the ways we are able to achieve this goal is to organize public engagement activities such as The Palestinian Bazaar. Public engagement activities link international development activities with community awareness and education in Canada. By making these links, HUMANSERVE works to facilitate a learning process that will enable Canadians to better understand the nature and importance of global issues while encouraging the appreciation of the culture and talent of the people affected by these issues.
