13 Nov
Derived from the French word for obstacle course, parkour involves running, jumping, climbing and vaulting to get from one point to another in a complex environment. It carries symbolic weight for Palestinians Jehad and Abdallah, who practice the sport in the ruins of Gaza.

A form of healing and resistance, her brightly coloured works often depict women grappling with the complex reality of life in Gaza. She joined us for Perspective.
