Art Palestine International (2008 - 2012), I was the Program Coordinator of Art Palestine International, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to exhibiting contemporary Palestinian art. From May 2016 - present, I organized and co-curated an Art Palestine International + Babycastles collaborative exhibition called "Over The Rainbow". The collaboration involved pairing participating Palestinian artists with Babycastles’ game developers to realize video games (loosely meaning: digitally interactive piece). The video games, along with other digital works of art were exhibited in Babycastles Gallery.
