Sam Hutchinson in conversation with Aram Sabbah of Skatepal

In October 2017, artist Sam Hutchinson travelled to Palestine to volunteer with the charity SkatePal. He taught skateboarding to local young people in the West Bank village of Asira Al-Shamaliya and helped with the maintenance of a skatepark built by the charity in 2015.

To mark the launch, Hutchinson will be in conversation with Aram Sabbah. One of the first skaters in Palestine, Sabbah completed his studies in Tunisia before returning to Palestine to help SkatePal in building ramps and teaching skateboarding. Based in Ramallah, he is now Local Manager, looking after all on-the-ground operations.
