The Artivism Festival launch and celebration of the twinning of the two cities took place simultaneously in Oxford and Ramallah. Our friends from Al-Am'ari Women's Centre had stitched an emroidery with the twinning logo and they presented this to the Mayor, Musa Hadid, in Ramallah's Town Hall.
Refa writes: "Thank you very much to everyone in Oxford and Ramallah for your interest in the Al-Am'ari Women's Centre participation in the Ashtar Festival on the Ramallah Municipality stage on 1 July. It was a beautiful and wonderful show in the presence of the British Consul, whom I spoke with and asked him to visit the Women's Centre in Al-Am'ari. We talked about Twinning and its importance. Everyone received us wonderfully. Ashtar Theatre, Ramallah Municipality and the British Consul. Greetings from the Women's Centre."
