Beit Zatoun “Together Wall”

Friday, December 1, 2017 - Sunday, April 1, 2018

Enjoy the "Together Wall" - Beit Zatoun is now an empty building - a shell for something that many experienced as alive and exciting. However sad, we remain grateful and could not have wished for better home. The best thing now is to keep its memory and legacy so that it can inspire new initiatives and people to a vision of possibility for future spaces and mandates. The Together Wall was proposed as a fun and lasting way to memorialize the contribution made and the lived togetherness. This photo was graciously taken by Bryan T and is offered here with animage zoom capability to read the individual messages. Enjoy and be moved to start something new.
