Mamilla International Poetry Festival
September 7, 2013, 12:00 AM – September 9, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT
Encouraged by renewed hope for the preservation of the ancient Mamilla Cemetery, ARCH joins hands with the Mahmoud Darwish Foundation and Museum and the Campaign to Preserve Mamilla Jerusalem Cemetery in organizing the Mamilla International Poetry Festival, to take place in Ramallah and Jerusalem between September 7 – 9, 2013.
The festival, whose theme is “A Dialogue with Memory,” was conceived to protect the ancient Mamilla Cemetery from complete and final destruction by invoking poetry to promote it as a place of living memory and eternal sanctity.
