Milton Keynes PSC will be hosting a presentation on ‘The Palestinian History Tapestry Project’ with Jan Chalmers.
Jan Chalmers has had an interest in Palestine since the late 1960s, when she and her husband lived in Gaza for two years, where they worked for the United Nations maternal and child health programme. Jan is one of two British women who recently taught embroidery to South African village women, and assisted in supporting them in creating a successful South African History Tapestry. These experiences led Jan to hope that a Palestinian History Tapestry could be made, and that it might be equally successful.
The Palestinian History Tapestry Project is a not for profit organisation established to support Palestinian embroiderers in telling their stories.
