Join us in exploring the complexities of identity and connection in Israel and Palestine.
The Middle East is associated with age-old tensions (see below for up-to-date safety information). Yet it’s also home to leaders who are healing divides with tenacity and compassion within a rich cultural landscape.
We’ll meet religious and secular Israelis and Palestinians – entrepreneurs, academics, refugee leaders, artists, political figures and diplomats.
Israel, with a population of just 8.5 million, has transformed itself into a global business success story. Its tech experts lead the field in cyber security, robotics, mobile technologies, online platforms and big data.
Palestinians share a profound sense of community. They’ve built a flourishing agriculture sector and a buzzing IT scene – both driven by the versatility and creativity necessary during life under occupation.
This is a chance to challenge our preconceptions about others – and ourselves – and explore the subtle complexities of identity and connection.
