The aim of the project is to give opportunity to 44 young theatre students in Palestine to work on a professional level, extending professional networks and getting access to new job opportunities. These students will become specialized in the following fields: Light, sound, costume, scenography, stage management & production management for performing arts, assessed by and working with professional actors and directors. As a result a mini festival will be produced, reaching Ministry of Culture, local organisations, partners and communities.
The project is led by Al-Harah Theater, a Palestinian based theatre house for children, youth and adults addressing social topics; in cooperation with Dar Qandeel for Arts and Culture, a Palestinian based organisation working on culture and heritage, human rights awareness, democracy, and freedom of expression. In partnership with Al-Balad Theater, a Jordan based theatre and dance house dedicated to produce and promote independent artistic and cultural productions in the region; and Ashtar Theater, based in Palestine, with an aim to promote creativity and commitment for change through a novel combination of specific training and acting programs and services and professional theatre performances.
