Friday 23rd June 2023 | 19:00 - 20:30



A conversation between Ghada Karmi and Lowkey about her new book and the idea of one-state, the event will start with screening of "A Curious Place to be", the film reflects on Karmi's arrival to the UK after being ethnically cleansed from Jerusalem during the Nakba of 1948. 


Ghada identifies her trauma as a refugee and how it has led her to be a life-long activist for Palestine, both in setting up the original "Palestine Action" and in her writing and political thinking.


Ghada sets out her compelling argument for One State, the only democratic future for Palestine-Israel.



Ghada Karmi is a Palestinian physician, academic and writer. Her previous books have included her acclaimed memoir, In Search of Fatima, a second memoir, Return, and Married to Another Man, a political analysis of the one-state solution.


Lowkey is a prominent British-Iraqi hip hop artist, academic and campaigner for justice. He has performed on numerous platforms, and his latest album, Soundtrack to the Struggle 2, has been streamed millions of times.
