in Camps

Campus in Camps is an experimental education program that activates critical learning and egalitarian environments in Palestinian refugee camps. It was founded by Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti in 2012, when it was based in Dheisheh refugee camp, Bethlehem Palestine. It began as a space for communal learning and production of knowledge grounded in lived experience and connected to communities. Campus in Camps now exists within four Palestinian refugee camps on the West Bank, with both self-organized courses by participants and a collaboration with both local and international universities.
