On Friday, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar by Faten Nastas, a Palestinian Artist based with Diyar, in Bethlehem. This was part of a series of events supported by the twinning agreement between Glasgow and Bethlehem.
The mission of Diyar is "That We Might Have Life and Have It Abundantly".
The Diyar Consortium offers educational opportunities in visual arts, performing arts and tourism. It appears to have a vital role by supporting new job opportunities and talented people are able to develop their own livelihoods.
