April 5th to 20th 2017

Nablus is 5th oldest city in the world and is one of the biggest cities in Palestine, with a beautiful old city, but unfortunately there are very limited cultural activities organized in Nablus and no cultural festivals.
Our initiative in Project Hope is to start an annual Festival ( Nablus Festival for Culture and Arts), as a grassroots initiative in partnership with cultural actors that are active in Palestine.
For 8 days we will have art Exhibitions, film screenings, conferences, workshops and concerts in the old city of Nablus, Balata camp, Old Askar Camp and New Askar Camp.
Every day at 11h: Art Exhibition or photo Exhibition
Every day at 16h: Film screening or conference
Every day at 19h: Concert
