Join us for Bringing Back Love, a two part community event celebrating unity, culture and hope for Palestine. Named after a line in Palestinian writer Rafeet Alareer’s poem ‘If I Must Die’, Bringing Back Love invites everyone to come together and express support for Palestine in a positive and meaningful way, by making kites and gathering to fill the skies over Geelong with a message of hope and peace for the children of Palestine.

On Sunday 18th Feb @12 noon, make the sky shine with love as we gather at Rippleside Park. Bring a picnic and fly kites you have made or bought high in the sky to show your love and support for Palestine. The picnic will celebrate Palestinian culture and include other activities such as face-painting, henna painting and storytelling for the kids. No need to register for this event, just come along with your family or friends, a picnic lunch and your kites.

There will also be a kite-making workshop for kids aged 5 - 12 years old the previous day, Saturday Feb 17th @3pm at Platform Arts. See our separate event listing for details and to register.

These are family friendly and inclusive events brought to you be Free Palestine Geelong, Platform Arts and the Islamic Society of Geelong. People of all religious and non-religious backgrounds are welcome. Parental supervision required at all times.
