Al Rowat Projects
Al Rowat (storytellers in Arabic) is a research institution that documents Palestinian social history by collecting oral testimonies of cultural value, and focuses on recording women experiences as part of its vision and belief in the importance of focusing on the stories of marginalized groups whose testimonies were excluded when history was written. The institution currently operates in Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and Chile through four projects: 1948 Displacement Project, Pioneer Women Biographies Project, Gaza Suffering - Aggression of 2014 Project and Fiddet Zaman (Palestinian Silver Heritage) Project. A group of female researchers from different geographical locations work on the Center’s projects. They have experience in the field of oral history as well as multicultural experiences.
