lecture: Tatreez: stories of tradition, resistance and connection by Fatima Abbadi (ENG)


Sunday, March 17 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – ENGLISH LECTURE

Discover the story behind Tatreez, the centuries-old Palestinian embroidery, during a lecture by photographer, embroiderer and collector of Jordanian and Palestinian costumes, Fatima Abbadi. From 1948 onwards, the Tatreez grew into a powerful political symbol for Palestinian identity and an instrument of resistance. More than just an art form, Tatreez is a connecting element for the Palestinian diaspora that wants to keep Palestinian culture and traditions alive.

Fatima Abbadi lives in Capelle aan den IJssel. She grew up between Abu Dhabi and Jordan and moved to Italy in 1997 for her university studies where she stayed until 2019 when she moved to the Netherlands with her family. Women and intercultural dialogue are a common thread in her projects, such as the embroidery workshops she has set up for refugee women in the Netherlands or her research into female embroidery traditions of a Christian community in Northern Iraq.
