In these pivotal times for culture and social entrepreneurship, patronage and sponsorship are of utmost relevance. It is thanks to the support of patrons and partners that we can continue and expand our impact and activities, and develop new, thought provoking products and events that take the domestic reality as a context to address issues that define the Palestinian plight and the reality of living under occupation.
By supporting our organization or joining the Disarming Design Patrons Club, you provide Disarming Design from Palestine with crucial backup to further professionalize and broaden our organization with a highly creative, conscious and comprehensive range of activities. Together they are examining the potential of creative practices as forms of resistance, hence contributing to social innovation and alternative forms of circular economies.
