Local filmmaker Davey Davis is headed to Palestine. Davis has been doing camera work for some of our video interviews (remember the Sam Wilson interview?), and since he’s been manning the 337 Art Truck you’ve probably run into him at one event or another.
In January he’ll be going to Palestine for three months as a volunteer with Project Hope. He’ll be teaching film to kids in Nablus, where unemployment is 60% and as high as 80% in the refugee camps.
Tonight at the Art Center there’s a party to send him off, as well as some fundraising activities to help pay for the trip. 7 – 9 PM. Read more about the project and the party at Davis’ blog.
