-Huda Asfour and musical ensemble
-Visiting Palestine, a one-act play performed by Leila Buck, written and directed by Noura Erakat
-DJ Fatin

About DARS Page

The DARS Page chronicles daily acts of resistance and subversion (DARS) in contemporary Arab societies and beyond. All forms of resistance and subversion to political, economic, social, or cultural forms of exploitation are of interest. This includes resistance to authoritarianism, occupation, imperialism, and social norms, and the many ways these are subverted.

While acts of resistance and subversion are ubiquitous, the focus is conventionally placed on the grand and visible, even as these constitute a small portion of the daily actions of millions of people who find themselves resisting and subverting on a daily basis. We cover and analyse both visible as well as invisible daily acts of resistance and subversion. DARS also features news and analyses on civil society in the region. 

DARS aims to provide both empirical and theoretical means to capture a multitude of phenomen: personal or collective, visible or underground, nonviolent or violent. We are not locked into a political party nor into a single theoretical framework. We advocate a decidedly critical and contextualized approach. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to us to consider featuring something on the DARS Page, please email us at dars@jadaliyya.com
