*Art Against Imprisonment <http://artagainstprison.org> *is hosting this 
event to mark Palestinian Prisoners Day, April 17th 2022.  Palestinians 
have commemorated April 17th since 1974 as a national tribute to 
prisoners and their sacrifices, a call to unify the efforts to support 
them and their right to freedom, and a call for solidarity with their 
families. <https://www.birzeit.edu/en/palestinian-prisoners-day> This 
year we uplift the daring Great Escape 
<https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/tamara-nassar/israel-seeks-revenge-after-palestinian-great-escape>of 
six Palestinian prisoners from the maximum security Gilboa prison on 
September 6th, 2021.  We also mark the courageous collective boycott of 
Israeli military courts by Palestinian administrative detainees 
<https://www.addameer.org/index.php/news/4736> since January 1, 2022, 
now in its fourth month.

Art Against Imprisonment shines a light on the creativity which people 
in prison use to break through repression, isolation and invisibility. 
For Palestinian Prisoners Day 2022, we are proud to host Palestinian 
former prisoners and artists to celebrate steadfast resistance against 
imprisonment, occupation, and settler colonialism.
