من الصعب استيعاب لوغو بيت لحم عاصمة الثقافة من النظرة الاولى ولا الثانية ولا الثالثة . بالنظرة الرابعة تبدأ بالسؤال عن علاق الزخارف والأشكال بالتراث والثقافة الفلسطينية . جميل يذكرنا بافريقيا . هل تلك شجرة زيتون ؟؟ ربما ، ولكنها لم تبد لي كالزيتون الذي اعرف . وكنيسة المهد المفترضة تشبه الكنائس بالأفلام الأجنبية .
. تلك الواحة لقبة ونخلة تبدو وكأنها من فيلم الرسالة
أين الشعار مما يمثلنا ؟
كنت قدسعدت للوهلة الاولى بالإنجاز الجديد ، وفكرت ان وزارة الثقافة وضعت اللوغو المحتمل قبل اعلانه رسميا.
. نعم يتم استهلاك التطريز الفلسطيني كثيرا ، ولكنه يمثل تراثنا وتندرج منه ثقافتنا بنسيج غزلنه نساء فلسطين على مر التاريخ . كنيسة المهد وبيت لحم وما تمثله من تعابير يستخدمها العالم كمهد المسيح .
كم كان من الصعب ابتكار لوغو يحاكي لوحة المدينة ؟؟؟

The logo that the ministry of culture chose for Bethlehem the Capital of Culture 2020

Has a church but not the Nativity.

Has signs and colors but not related to the Palestinian Embroidery.

Has a tree but by all means is not the olive tree..

Has an Arab house that is far built a thousand years in Arabia

In times when Israel uses the Nativity Church for sites of importance to the history of the place , for Jesus that troubled their existence. When the minister of Israel’s culture walks around with Plaestinian embroidered dress, and their fashion designers present their beauty with Palestinian artful embroideries.

When we connect our roots to that of the olive tree, with art crafts of Bethlehem’s wood and resemblance to Jesus is crafted with style and heritage.

It feels speechless to make more comments on this mess…

A rural American church, and symbols of Adinkra and Gye Nyame and other African signs and colors and an arab house from Arabia is the loud call for Bethlehem the Capital of Culture…. It is Bethlehem the universal capital of culture!!!

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...
