Palestinian Hustle brings Tell Your Story line to life
Palestinian Hustlers’ first "TELL YOUR STORY" open mic night was a success. 17 people attended the inaugural event.
Palestinian Hustle is a clothing brand and one of their clothing lines, Tell Your Story, came about when Samer Fidy—the founder—wanted to give people a chance to be able to speak openly and without judgement about anything they may be feeling or going through.
Together, with Mohannad Abuzant and Sherine Khalil of Massimo Art Gallery, they planned the event to give people from all cultures and backgrounds a platform to tell their stories. A place where people have told their stories through art would be the perfect venue to host an open mic night. Presenters performed everything from songs, rap, poems, or just spoke about their hobbies, life stories, or careers. Massimo Art Gallery's own Mohannad and Sherine read poems they had written. Aramis, one of Samer's good friends, spoke about why he chose to become a photographer. Samer learned so much about his friends past which he wouldn't have known if not for the open mic night. Samer ended the night with a poem he wrote about Palestine. It was amazing listening to people open up about their lives, struggles and expressing themselves through singing, rapping and poetry.
Given the success of the first open mic night, Palestinian Hustle and Massimo Art Gallery are planning to make it a quarterly or even a monthly event. They are very excited for the next event and expect an even bigger turnout this time.
