Join us as for a presentation by Dr. Suad Amiry, Shatha Safi,and Michel Salameh on the important work of Riwaq, a historical preservation organization based in Ramallah, working to restore Palestinian homes and buildings. Founded in 1991, Riwaq focuses on preserving Palestinian collective memory through projects that document and restore architectural heritage sites across the West Bank and Gaza, distinguished by its focus on rural areas in Palestine and job creation. Through this dual focus, Riwaq raises awareness about cultural heritage as a pillar for Palestinian identity and collective memory.
