Caravan Palestine 2018
In 2003, we started building a bridge between Palestinian and European art communities, with the initiative “100 artists in Palestine”. Later in the first decade of 2000s, we took part in the “Voices of Palestine”, a series of conferences focusing on the work of Palestinian artists of all disciplines. In 2010, we undertook an insightful Caravan journey to Ramallah and Jerusalem.
Today, we are excited to join forces with Al Harah Theatre, Arts Council Malta and Zigu Zajg and organise our long-awaited return to Ramallah and discover Bethlehem, creating real opportunities for you to exchange ideas and projects with the local scene, and build new bonds and potential partnerships. Our week-long journey will happen as part of CLAP! - Creative Labs and Artistic Performances in Palestine funded by the EU, and a performing arts showcase organised by the Palestinian Performing Arts Network for the first time in Palestine. Alongside with discovering a unique snapshot of the local music, theatre, dance and circus performances, we will visit a range of venues and cultural centres in Ramallah and Bethlehem, meet artists and producers working in the field, and discuss the burning topics for the local sector, in an informal setting.
Incredible cuisine is part of the experience, as well as a very special and alternative tour in Bethlehem.
