Festivals and Hosting Programme
The Palestinian National Theatre has always been an institution that is well united with the local community, and has always ensured that it welcomes the local community on institutional or individual level. Moreover, it has always acted as a contact point between occupied Jerusalem and the rest of the Palestinian cities, and between Palestine and the rest of the world, providing itself as a bridge that transfers the Palestinian art, literature, and cause to the world, and transfers the world’s solidarity to Palestine.
The halls of the Palestinian National Theatre hold hundreds of activities, seminars, and social workshops of a political, artistic, social, and intellectual print. Through its many contacts and friends, the International Theatre could open the doors wide for the Palestinian artists to exchange expertise with other artists, artistic groups, and artistic institutions from the Arab world and the globe through workshops, seminars, and trainings. The International Theatre, furthermore, invites and hosts theatre teachers from Palestine and the world to run artistic workshops that enroll theatre actors and drama trainers, in addition to inviting trainers and drama graduates to participate in similar workshops (as those mentioned above) outside Palestine, all through its wide network of local and international contacts and supporters.
