Often the reliability of the information we are shown through media can be taken for granted and it’s always important to research further and expand your sources and understanding. As the founder of Nocturnal I am incredibly passionate about the influence media has on our understanding of the wider world – especially on our fears, expectations, and misbeliefs.
We’re no longer in the age of ignorance. The internet allows communication to surpass borders and it’s about time we begin to look further than just what we’re shown.
The opportunity to have an authentic experience and explore Palestine, whilst attending their spiritual festivals and meeting like-minded creatives in their communities, will be immensely treasured. Especially with the ongoing transnational conflicts, it can be hard to decipher for yourself what’s truly going on whilst living your day-to-day life thousands and thousands of miles away. I’m expecting to have my world shook up in the most eye-opening way.
I have £500 ($660) left to raise for Amos Trust in order to complete this journey with them and Saffron Records. No contribution is too small – it represents solidarity in the face of constant opposition, which I treasure deeply.
