23–26 August — Boughton House, Kettering, Northants
Join us at Greenbelt 2019 where we’ll be cooking up a storm in The Table and hosting Holy Land Trust Director and Amos friend, Sami Awad.
Greenbelt Festival 2019
Wit & Wisdom — Boughton House, Kettering, Northants.
Look! It’s Phoebe Rison from Sabeel-Kairos and The Olive Tree Kitchen searing (?) an aubergine in The Table, the new cooking demo tent at Greenbelt last summer. Phoebe is the advocacy officer at Sabeel-Kairos, focusing on BDS and Morally Responsible Investment and a director of Embrace the Middle East Trading Ltd.
Of Palestinian origin, Phoebe grew up helping her mother and grandmother in the kitchen and is a keen cook, running a food blog which promotes Palestinian food, culture and crafts.
Phoebe will be back at Greenbelt this August bank holiday weekend — cooking, telling stories, sharing some amazing recipes and trying to keep Chris away from the sharp knives. Please scroll down to see the full itinerary.
We’ll also be hosting our friend, Sami Awad (below). Sami is an internationally acclaimed speaker and Executive Director of Holy Land Trust, whose inspirational approach to peace-making is built upon creating new models of leadership, on promoting non-violent strategies and on bringing together Palestinian communities and their emerging young leaders.
Sami says, “We can’t wait for someone to come and liberate us or give us a state; we need to fight to achieve such things. The method we use is non-violence, because non-violence is not only a means of resistance, but of individual empowerment and thus the empowerment of society to take initiative.”
Peace: Sami Awad, Director of Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem will be joining us at Greenbelt 2019 — sharing stories of creative non-violent resistance in Palestine.
Sami is a descendent of a Palestinian refugee family that was expelled from their home in Jerusalem in 1948. He grew up in Bethlehem under the Israeli military occupation and from a young age took part in non-violent activism to end the occupation. He holds a BA degree in Political Science and a Masters in Peace and Conflict Resolution.
Below is the draft programme of all the Amos-related activities throughout the weekend. Venues and times are subject to change:
This year, The Table is situated close to the main Glade Arena.
Caravan of Love: Amos’ unofficial home at Greenbelt 2019 will be at the back of the Glade Arena all weekend.
