The story of our fellow Mahmoud Al Shaer
From growing up in an isolated community, to being the founder of the cultural 28 Magazine; this is the story of our inspiring fellow: Mahmoud Al Shaer.
In 2013, Mahmoud founded 28 Magazine with a group of young Palestinian writers from Gaza and abroad. 28 Magazine is an Arabic language literary and cultural magazine which addresses different cultural discourse.
The titled number 28 refers to the number of letters in the Arabic language. Through this title, the magazine aspires to form a cultural base that participates in the knowledge-building of young writers and creators, and sponsors their creative projects.
Other than publishing printed and online magazines every once in a while, They created a creative Safe Space in 28 Magazine, that has a deeper benefit. It offers opportunities for creators, young artists and writers to present their literary and creative work and interact with the Palestinian and larger Arab society through a series of events that include literary evenings, panel discussions, art exhibitions, concerts,and film screenings, organized by the 28 Magazine team in cooperation with variety of cultural communities in Gaza.
