1. Gaza Beach Art [Austria]
Requests 1 XO for 5 months
Gaza Beach: We Join the Party -- public art intervention
On the occasion of Tel Aviv's centennial, the city of Vienna has
invited the state of Israel to stage part of its celebrations at a
beach at the Danube Canal.
Under the title "Gaza Beach -- Life Imprisonment Live", several
intervention projects will simultaneously be staged in public spaces.
They are aimed at directing as much attention to Palestine as to
Israel for the duration of the "Tel Aviv Beach."
Our project is aimed at helping to create an authentic atmosphere and
to enable the cooperation between Tel Aviv and its nearest partner
city: Gaza in a neutral environment.
2. Audubon MS XO Library and Repair Center [Los Angeles, Calif, USA]
Requests 10 XO's for 24 months
Set up an XO laptop lending library for the 50 students enrolled in
