Omar Ahmad Khaled

Cultures of Resistance Awards — Palestine
Omar Ahmad Khaled is a singer-songwriter living in the Mar Elias Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. Originally a refugee in the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in Syria, he was displaced once again and became a refugee in Lebanon. The experience prompted him to write and sing about the daily life of refugees and the struggles they face. The environment in which he lives in inspired him to reflect on his experiences and what he sees daily in the camp. 
Khaled received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to produce some of his songs.
