WEST BANK: TAGHYEER

The day-long workshops in the South Hills of Hebron (West Bank) offer Palestinian women the chance to work together in a way that allows self-actualization within their own cultural and religious environment.

Taghyeer wants to give those participants the opportunity to have a sense of individuality using self-expression to bring empowerment and self-esteem. The process of being creative and allowing their own style and narrative to come forth is cathartic.

The women take great pride in the photos they take and then share with the group.  The viewing of their images is a crucial aspect of the workshop because it is about acknowledgement.  It is a recognition of their uniqueness and individuality.

Those workshops are a chance to work with others from the same background and culture in a way that allows self-expression and freedom opening within and beyond the pressures of the environment.
