Each of the seven murals, inspired by a poem by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, brings the message of hope and will be translated into traditional Palestinian embroidery Tatreez on canvas, handstitched by refugee women artisans. A symbolic tribute to the Year of Tolerance, the project will be presented at a 3D booth during the 11th edition of Abu Dhabi Art on 20-23 Nov 2019 at Manarat Al Saadiyat.
