Al-Rowwad: Beautiful Resistance
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Beautiful Resistance promotes human rights through creative and non-violent responses to the armed occupation of Palestine. Meet Dr Abdelfattah Abusrour, founder of the Beautiful Resistance and architect of Al-Rowwad Cultural Association in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem. Using art, dance, music and film to break the cycle of violence and oppression experienced by young people daily, programmes promote recovery from trauma, build resilience and hope and preserve the dignity of those living with the harsh realities of life under armed occupation. Hear Dr Abusrour's story and savour traditional dabka dance and song performed by Al-Rowwad's young artists.
