  • Programma half zittend, half staand

In light of the ongoing tragedy faced by the Palestinian people, Parallel and Paradiso are collaborating with the new Amsterdam-based collective, RAFI (Raising Awareness and Funds Initiative), to organize a day and nightprogram centered around raising awareness and funds, as the name suggests.

During the earlier hours of the day, there will be a market offering valuable goods like clothing, books, poetry, posters, and Palestinian merchandise. Alongside the market, there will be music provided by DJ’s and a space for conversation facilitated by RAFI.

After the market, the event transitions into a conversational and educational program. Collaborating with speakers well-versed in the situation in Palestine and maintaining an attentive attitude, the audience will be encouraged to explore a multitude of perspectives on the subjects.

Finally, the fundraiser will be concluded with music by, amongst others, rappers and DJ’s with affinity with the Palestinian cause.

Full line-up and program to be announced.

About RAFI:
Raising Awareness and Funds Initiative started out with a group of students, creatives, artists, but most importantly friends who were devastated by the escalation of the ongoing tragedies in Palestine. “Anger, fear, heartbreak, and grief took us to the streets, but love, listening, vocalizing and mobilizing locally, we believe, will have us make a wider impact.”
