Fundraising concert for Medical Aid for Palestinians
The scale of the emergency in Gaza is unprecedented. Medical Aid for Palestinians has a team in the Strip distributing medical supplies, aid and food. They are also working to procure and distribute other critical supplies like mattresses, blankets, and hygiene kits. The team are working with local partners to distribute hot meals to thousands of families forced to flee their homes. However, they are in urgent need of supplies to continue their efforts.
Through this concert, presented by Turquoise Coconut in collaboration with The Globe, we hope to raise crucial funds, to send a message of solidarity from the people of the North East to the people of Palestine, and to implore the international community to see reason, doing everything possible to bring an immediate end to this senseless violence.
The line-up will feature:
– Tobias Sarra
– Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno
– Amy Thatcher and Francesca Knowles
– Collective Improvisation (with members of the other groups plus John Pope, Thomas Dixon and John Garner)
