Sponsor a Wall Poster in Bethlehem
Help to expand the museum
We invite you to sponsor a large poster with a human Palestinian story to be attached on the Wall in Bethlehem. Already 100 posters bring out the stories of Palestinian life and challenge the restrictions under occupation. This “Wall Museum” will be expanded and will present many new Palestinian voices to the world.
The “Wall Museum”
Since two years AEI puts large posters (2 by 1 meter) on the 9-meter high Wall surrounding the Tomb of Rachel in North Bethlehem. Each of the now almost 100 posters, with thin metal underground, displays a brief English-language story-from-life of a Palestinian. The story is about the problems as a result of the Wall and many other restrictions, but also about Palestinian sumud, steadfastness or resilience. You are invited to help giving Palestinians a voice and sponsor new posters by (the equivalent of) 100 Euro or 135 US dollar, including the costs of design, printing and fixing. The posters are adjacent to each other on the Wall and together form a gradually expanding “Wall Museum.” The donors’ names are mentioned on the posters, except when this is not preferred. Visitors of Bethlehem are encouraged to walk along the museum. AEI’s website will give an overview of all posters.
