Al Madad Foundation : The Children of Gaza


Earlier this year three international photographers, Giuseppe Aquili, Jim McFarlane and Anthony Dawton, with the support of Al Madad Foundation and Save the Children entered Gaza. For nearly two weeks the award winning photographers photographed children a…nd their families victims of the Israeli incursion on December 27th 2008. The images are extraordinary, they tell of what happened and the damage done, physically and psychologically but they also tell of a people particularly the children, bright intelligent and full of hope.

The exhibition will be as dramatic in its presentation as the images themselves comprising of black and white photographic art works. Included in the exhibition will be original pieces, inspired by the photographic images, from the renowned artist Dia Azzawi. His images will provide a vivid and colourful contrast to the imposing mono chrome images of Aquili, Dawton and McFarlane.

The exhibition hopes to define the process in which art can bring understanding to seemingly intractable political conflict as well as to highlight the terrible consequences long and short term of such conflicts.

Proceeds from the exhibition will go to Save the Children projects in Gaza particularly its outstanding work with conflict traumatised children. Both Al Madad Foundation and Save the Children will be on hand at exhibitions to answer questions both about the works of art and Save the Children’s projects in Gaza.

  41. You made some respectable factors there. I seemed on the web for the issue and located most individuals will go together with together with your website.

  42. Andrew, To clarify the is/ought business – I believe that there is a real difference between good and evil. It is not just a matter of us dancing to our DNA, nor is it just a matter of our upbringing or evolutionary sophistication (if such a thing exists as evolutionary sophistication.) I also reject that the difference between good andevil is simply a difference of opinion, no matter how strongly held the opinion is. The explanatory power of evolution is limited to the descriptive. It can propose theories describing how things are and offer a possible explanation as to how things got that way. Evolution cannot, however, offer a prescription of how things ought to be. Yet, it seems universal in human experience to me that we do have moral intuition about theseoughts. The moral intuition of said oughts, in fact, is what this whole discussion of morality has been about.

  46. Preservation of the species as a basis for morality doesnt seem to be a sufficient explanation. Where did this ought – to seek the survival of the species- come from? If the answer is The ought of a species seeking its own survival evolved from a species seeking its own survival, its a circular argument.
