WATCH: Women take on public art project in Gaza

Sept. 25, 2010 4:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 26, 2010 1:42 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Graduates of Gaza's Fine Arts programs were invited to participate in a project: painting on the walls of an UNRWA compound in Gaza City.

The women in the program felt an acute responsibility to participate, in what would be the first ever public art project involving both sexes.

Speaking with Ma'an's reporter, three of the women who took up the challenge explain their motivations.

Filmed for a series of short features broadcast during the holy month of Ramadan, Lina Ibrahim's story aired as part of the program Hay Baladna (This is Our Country), which highlights the challenges and successes of Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem and cities now in Israel.

The programs are broadcast on the only Palestinian satellite channel in Israel, and can be viewed in homes across the Middle East.
