Millions of people are being uprooted, separated from their families, and risk losing their culture as a result of war, poverty, repression, and climate injustice. Rest in My Shade is a poetic story about displacement, identity, and loss recited by an ancient olive tree. It features art created in various media by Palestinian artists living around the world. In today's world of refugee and migration crises, Rest in My Shade is a tool for building understanding about the universality of the displacement experience. It conveys hope that together we can build a world in which we can all live without fear, move freely, value and share the cultures and traditions that make us who we are, and feel dignity and acceptance everywhere.
