Palestinian culture and everyday life in East Jerusalem

BROWNBOOK magazine features a thoughtful and evocative piece from Natasha Stallard on Palestinian cultural life in East Jerusalem.

The richly illustrated article is a welcome change from much of the writing we see on Palestinian life in the city, departing from the dominant framework of violence and occupation, and thinking about resistance in a different way.

Stallard tours a number of Palestinian cultural landmarks, including the Al Ma’mal Foundation and Yabous cultural centres, the ‘Palestinian Pottery’ studio and shop, and the famous Educational Bookshop (a true pilgrimage site for visiting researchers).
