No ComplY - A Gaza Skate Park Fundraise Compilation
This is dedicated to the Gaza Skate Park Fundraise Compilation project from our Palestinian friends at Exist.
With unsustainable rates of PTSD amongst the children in Gaza, the Skate Park fosters a cathartic medium for healing and mindfulness. The Skate Park successfully disrupts existing archaic gender roles by establishing a special skate team for girls whilst providing free lessons and skating equipment. With zero support from the local government, Skate Gaza’s ethos, mirrors Exist’s emblematic DIY attitude, characterized as a homegrown, self-funded project, preserving the autonomy, resilience & resistant Palestinian spirit.
The Hip-hop, pan-African rap, and deconstructed rhythm-inspired compilation will be available on a limited-edition Compact Disc (CD) and available for listening & streaming via Bandcamp, Spotify, Soundcloud, etc.
The release features a limited press of “No ComplY” T-shirts and a very limited number of “No ComplY” skateboards, with a unique design for each skateboard, crafted by our very own Tala & Bader who has been the masterminds behind the project's art direction.
All profits from the release will be distributed to the Skate Gaza team, in an effort to support and expand the Skate Parks mission. We have partnered with 7hills Skate team in Amman who will be providing skating equipment to the team in Gaza, as well as providing free lessons & skills training for the Skate Park team and children.
Exist recognizes the essential nature of raising awareness and finances for the vitalization of the project, but also recognizes the non-financial contributions that will provide indispensable support for the development of skills and the resources required to facilitate such opportunity. "
