Thursday, December 2, 2010 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Don't miss this evening of performance and art!  On Dec. 2, Chicago area actors will be performing the Ashtar Theatre's "The Gaza Monologues!" Written by teenagers in Gaza, the monologues are their stories of life under occupation and siege. "The Gaza Monologues" reveal the human face of Palestinian youth with virtually no outlet to the outside world.

The monologues have been brought to venues around the world and will be performed at the United Nations on November 29th. Join us as we bring this world-renowned performance to Chicago for the first time!

The Monologues will be performed at the 101 Exhibit area at Columbia College for the opening of Skip Schiel's "Windows into Gaza" photography exhibit. Skip's photography captures daily life of Palestinians in Gaza. The exhibit will be at Columbia from December 2nd until December 7th.

Doors open at 7:00. The Performance begins at 7:45.

Event is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee and Iymen Chehade, Department of Humanities, History and Social Science, Columbia College
