Mobile Health needs to replace its mobile medical unit to continue providing diagnostic services and preventative medicine to city residents. The van costs $120,000, and a bank is will-ing to lend the nonprofit the money at a 6% interest rate for 5 years. Payments are due at the end of each month, and interest is compounded monthly.

whose peaks are populated by the giants Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, and a map whose terrain widens to include the stories to the east (Arabian Nights) and the stories to the north (Hans Christian Anderson). The map grows wider still, to house the storytellers who populate these peaks, offering their own multifarious renditions of fairy tale (Angela Carter, Margaret Atwood, Speranza Wilde – to name but a few). For fairy tale has as many versions as people willing to tell them. The first fairy tales originated not from the pen, but by mouth, passed from storyteller to storyteller before being assembled into collections eponymously attached to their gatherer. Later came the literary versions, tales collected, re-written and invented, a fashion beginning in the 17th century that continues to this day. As they bumble through the centuries they gather dust; carrying with them the social, political and moral conditions of the various moments in which they were spoken and written. Warner outlines the defining characteristics of fairy tale; a short narrative populated with mythical creatures, their narrator is matter-of-fact, the tone exists throughout regardless of any violent acts. They start in an indistinguishable time and invariably end ‘happily-ever-after’, their spirit is of hope in the face of rampant injustice and violence. Such spirited optimism, can offer hope in the dark, but expose the conditions of the murkiness itself. Both artists I will investigate in this essay name their sources as fairy tale, Rachel Maclean’s Spite Your Face is a “dark venetian fairytale” re-told from the Pinocchio tale. Jumana Emil Abboud collects and re-writes traditional Palestinian fairy tale, performing them alongside other storytellers in her recent installation and performance, A Happy Ending III: Tate Tales (henceforth will be written as A Happy Ending). Both use fairy tale to comment on contemporary political contexts; Spite Your Face was made in response to the Brexit vote and Trump election, A Happy Ending responds to the cultural siege of Palestine in the midst of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology defines politics as: “…the process of organizing social power in a community. Politics takes place at various levels of social interaction, from the micro-level – the politics of friendship, family politics, and so on – to the macro-level (international politics and global politics).”>GET ANSWER
