Pieces For Palestine
About the project
It is in Rapolitics' DNA to look beyond the Danish borders when we collaborate with artists and activists, and Palestine is in our hearts. With the project Pieces for Palestine, we create a platform where young people in Denmark and the West Bank meet, get professional and creative input and co-create within the genres of hip hop culture.
Palestinians both in and outside of Palestine have constantly experienced that their identity and existence have been threatened, and for far too long the international community has neglected the Palestinians' call for basic human rights and sanctions against their oppressors. In the meeting between young people in the West Bank and here in Denmark, Pieces for Palestine will create a space for new understandings and an entrance to create change on the young people's own terms.

In 2019, our storyteller Mudi travelled to the West Bank to visit the Dheisheh refugee camp. He met the rapper Sophie Alayasa aka Ettijah and the graffiti artist Moodie. Both of them uses art and creativity to express their emotions and experiences from life in an occupied country.
