Create shop 2012Teresa Palieri
Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus (ps), 1 – 15 September 2012
September 2012 a create shop has been organized by the International Academy of Art Palestine and the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam. Two dozen Palestinian designers, artists, students and three Amsterdam based master students worked from Ramallah to develop prototypes for the new collection of products. The create shop included excursions to Hebron and Nablus. It resulted in two vibrant, unpredictable and very fruitful weeks.
