The Freedom Theatre is a theatre and cultural centre in Jenin refugee camp, occupied Palestine. They stage professional theatre productions, hold theatre workshops in the refugee camp, Jenin town and villages, offer training in acting, pedagogy and photography, and publish books, exhibitions and short films.
Since they opened their doors in 2006, they have made theatre and visual art available to every young person in Jenin refugee camp. Their work has made Jenin refugee camp known in Palestine and internationally for innovative, thought-provoking theatre and media productions. They have created a generation of artists and leaders, who one day will be at the forefront of the Palestinian liberation movement.
Jenin refugee camp is one of the most oppressed areas of occupied Palestine – but also one of the most resilient. We know first-hand that there is immense potential in using the arts as a means of enriching the human spirit and coming together as a community to mobilize for change. Your contribution helps The Freedom Theatre provide creative activities for Palestinian young people, in theatre, photography, film, writing and much more. You enable them to stage professional theatre productions and bring Palestinian voices out to the world. Your support is absolutely essential to our ability to continue improving the lives of new generations through the arts.
All proceeds raised during the event will go towards funding the non-profit organization, the Freedom Theatre, in their strive towards uplifting the Palestinian population in Jenin.
