Khaled Jarrar is one of several artists included in the 2017 Palestine Expo, a programme held in London that aims to educate the public on the current state of Palestinian affairs not only in politics but also its cultural trends and social development. Spearheaded by the not-for-profit UK organisation Friends of Al-Aqsa, the Expo includes live entertainment, academic workshops, pop up exhibitions, and lectures.
Jarrar is included in the exhibition component of the two-day event with Olive Tree (2013), a mixed media work that comments on the catastrophic environmental effects of the Israeli wall, which has devastated Palestinian towns and cities, and the callous nature of the occupation it reinforces.
2017 Palestine Expo takes place on 8, 9 July 2017.
