Concrete Tent (Sharjah 2023)

The Concrete Tent in Al Madam Ghost Town is a space for collective mourning and solidarity with Palestine. While the tent is the basic element for the construction of refugee camps, it is also used for gatherings during funerals and protests. It is the material manifestation of the temporary status of refugees in the camps yet also symbolizes their right to return to their homes.

Venue: Al Madam, Sharjah, UAE
Time: 11 and 12 November, 16:00 – 19:00
13 November, 17:30 – 19:30
