This exhibition of children's artwork from Gaza has been in Wrexham since the end of April and is currently on display at St Christopher's Community School. It will be moving to Oswestry, Shropshire in July.

See it at Hermon arts space on Saturdays 13 and 20 July and hear Rod Cox speak about the artwork and the lives of the children who created it on Friday 19 July at the same venue.

This is an exhibition of more than fifty pieces of children's artwork "some funny, some tragic, many beautiful" collected by Rod Cox during a visit to Gaza with the Aid Convoy early in 2009 in the wake of Operation Cast Lead, a sustained attack by Israel which, according to Red Crescent spokesperson Dr. Khalil Abu Foul

"did not just have 1500 killed, or 5000 wounded. It has traumatised the entire population, all 1.5 million."

Public viewing dates in Oswestry

Saturdays 13 and 20 July, 10am - 4pm


Hermon Arts Space, Chapel Street, Oswestry SY11 1LF.

Talk by Rod Cox

Friday 19 July, 7.30pm, venue as above.

Rod will talk about the lives of the children who created these artworks following the 2008-9 Israeli invasion of Gaza.
