Organised in the framework of the CLAP! project, our Caravan to Palestine fostered the exchange of ideas and good practices between Palestinian and European performing arts professionals, encouraging new artistic collaborations between the participants. It was an opportunity for 36 international performing arts professionals to visit key Palestinian cultural venues, meet with local artists and cultural professionals and be exposed to local performances.


This Caravan Palestine 2018 led to a comprehensive report entitled Performing against extinction by IETM’s ex-Secretary General Nan van Houte, in which she paints a picture of the Palestinian performing arts scene from Al Nakba to the two Intifadas, all the way to the current situation.
