UPDATE (June 23, 2021): We are starting the transfer to Dar Jacir at the end of the month but will leave the fundraiser up for about two weeks longer to give time to a few who wanted to give. Sending gratitude to all.
UPDATE (June 11, 2021): We are all overwhelmed and thrilled by the international outpouring of support for Dar Jacir and its work. With twelve days left in the campaign, we have decided to double the campaign goal to $50,000. The original goal of $25,000 was oriented to repairing the damages sustained when Israeli forces raided the center. With the new fundraiser goal of $50,000 we will be able to direct donations to the longterm flourishing of Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art & Research, including maintaining and improving the Urban Farm. Thank you for your love and solidarity!!
Help Repair the Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art and Research in Bethlehem!
As many of you know, last week Israeli occupation forces broke into and raided Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art & Research — the beloved and respected grass-roots independent artist–run initiative founded in Bethlehem in 2014 by Emily Jacir, Annemarie Jacir, and Yusuf Nasri Jacir, and currently co-directed by Emily Jacir and Aline Khoury. Team members and resident artists are safe, but there was extensive damage throughout the historic 19th century building. The offices were ransacked, and equipment was taken including phones, computer, hard drive, cameras, books and more. Dar Jacir lost their Urban Farm as well when it was burnt to the ground during several fires that surrounded the house. You can read more here:
Donations in any amount will help replace equipment, repair the damages, and support the Dar Jacir team. The immediate goal is to cover damages estimated to be c. $25,000.
This campaign is hosted by AMCA (in association with other non-profit organizations) and is being organized on behalf of Emily Jacir, with her blessing, by a small group of friends and colleagues who passionately believe that the world needs this art space.
Please pass this message on to others! Let's help the Dar Jacir team continue to do this work, which is more urgently needed than ever.
In solidarity, the friends of Dar Jacir (among them Julia Bryan-Wilson, Anneka Lenssen, Asma Kazmi, Ahmad Diab, Nada Shabout, Sarah Rogers, and many others)
A note on payment processing issues: We believe we've resolved most of the Paypal issues, although we continue to receive notes from some donors to the campaign who found that Mastercard in particular was not going through properly. A workaround may be to use a debit card rather than a credit card (for those who have one).
