The Embassy of the State of Palestine recently participated in the Annual ACT Multicultural Festival, to introduce the public to Palestine's vibrant heritage and culture.
Held on the 13th February, the festival saw attendees visit the Embassy's stall to view and purchase traditional Palestinian embroidery and food such as olive oil, Frikeh, Maftoul, and Za'tar.
A mini exhibition of famous Palestinian paintings from well-known artists such as Sliman Mansour, Nabil Anani, Ismail Shammout, Vera Tamari and Tayseer Barakat was also on display. The chosen painting reflect the emotions associated with Palestinian life under Occupation, and Palestinian steadfastness to achieve self-determination through non-violent resistance.
The festival provided the Palestinian community and guests the opportunity to celebrate Palestinian heritage and culture.
