ARAB BEDOUIN: No Future Without Past - in pictures

 

 

 

 

This January, CBRL was pleased to be part of the exhibition, ARAB BEDOUIN: No Future Without Past, that took place over ten days in London. Through art, photography, film and sound the exhibition captured the stories of the Bedouin tribes of Lebanon, Jordan and the Occupied Palestinian Territories whilst recognising the challenges they face in preserving their past for the future. 

The exhibition was part of Cultural Corridors of Peace, a project that supports Bedouin communities in the Levant to document and safeguard their cultural heritage as a means of securing a better future. The project is supported by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund, in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Support. 

A delegation of Bedouin from across the Levant attended the opening and were honoured to be joined by HRH Princess Badiya bint Hassan after her father, HRH Prince Hassan bin Talal, acted as patron for the Bedouin gathering that took place in October last year. 

These photos follow the Jordanian delegation during a day in London as well as some images from the opening night of the exhibition. All photos are taken by Khadija Alfaqeer, the project officer for Jordan on behalf of the Cultural Corridors for Peace project.
