Events on this page are not organised by the Hexham Debates but concern related issues.
I, Daniel Blake 6th December at 5.15pm the Forum Cinema.
This is being shown to raise awareness of the work of the West Northumberland Food Bank
Walls and Peace Exhibition 12th to 20th November in Hexham Abbey
At a time when we are remembering those who died in the two
World Wars, these two interlinked exhibitions in help us to reflect on the very long lasting, current conflict over the land we know as Palestine and Israel.
One exhibition focuses on the history and role of 3 walls:
Hadrian’s Wall, the Berlin Wall & the Israeli Wall
The second exhibition uses illustrated information panels and
video footage to explore:
•Key Barriers to achieving a Just Peace and their effect
on daily life
•Work of joint Palestinian and Israeli groups committed
to overcoming those Barriers by non violent action
