Not Afraid to Look: in Memory of Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall

Thanks for those who participated and attended, our recent event was a success as we linked up 4 cities across three time zones with three photo expos participating in one event and around one cause together with the Hurndall and Corrie families.

The event included a photo expo that documented Rachel Corrie's and Tom Hurndall's work in Gaza, featuring photos that were taken by Rachel and Tom themselves. More than ten Gazan photographers  participated in the event that also included a Skype link-up between Palestine, UK and the US. More info on the actual event can be found at this older post. The expo and Skype meetings received  well over 100 visitors and local media attention in Gaza and elsewhere.

We had the pleasure of listening directly from Rachel's parents from the Rachel Corrie Foundation as well as Tom's mother in London. 

A special thank you for those who have funded, taken part or participated in this one-of-a-kind event, and we hope that we will be able to do something even bigger next year!
