A people-centered program that explores perspectives on settlements, land, and borders
Beyond the simplistic headlines lies a region full of complexity and a wide
range of perspectives. Through visits with everyday Palestinians and
Israeli Jews, meetings with community leaders, and tours of Palestinian
villages and Israeli settlements, we’ll confront the “Arab-Israeli Conflict”
head-on, hear unfiltered authentic voices, and seek to achieve a sense of
We’re told there are two sides to every story. In Palestinian & Israeli Narratives,
we’ll explore a range of perspectives through first-hand meetings and respectful
dialogue. As we journey through this historically charged land, all points of view
will be explored and respected. In fact, these challenging topics and questions
will serve as our guide to explore the Conflict. You’ll discover what the word
“occupation” means to affected communities, and understand the different
borders that impact the everyday lives of the people who live inside and outside
This exciting new program will feature visits to settlements and Palestinian
villages, meetings with residents and community leaders, encounters with
activists and change-makers, tours of borders and holy sites, and honest
conversation to help make sense of the Palestinian and Israeli realities.
