For Immediate Release

Upcoming Advocacy Initiatives In Lebanon, Palestine and Tunisia.  

The Drama, Diversity and Development project is pleased to announce that it will be organizing three advocacy initiatives in each of Lebanon, Palestine, and Tunisia. During these events, DDD’s team will be sharing the results achieved by our project both on the local and regional levels, in collaboration with our subgrantees in these countries. In addition, DDD will take this opportunity to meet with some decision makers in these countries as the events hosted aim also to advocate in favor of the role of culture for positive social change in these regions.

The first event took place in Lebanon on the 15th of February.

The second event will be taking place in Palestine on the 22nd of February at the Grand Park Hotel in Ramallah. Key speakers will include representatives from Minority Rights Group, Civic Forum Institute, European Union Delegation, Ashtar Theater, and Prime Minister’s Office. The discussion will be mainly around the issue of the Jordan Valley in a step towards addressing the challenges of their reality and putting in place the needed mechanisms to bring sustainable development in the Jordan Valley Area.

The third and last event will take place in Tunisia on the 24th of February at Dar Bech Hamba. The event will feature discussions and roundtables on the role of street art for positive social change. The day will be concluded with two short performances offered by Fanni Raghman Anni and Art Solution and the screening of a documentary about Stambeli produced by Art solution.

Through DDD, civil society organizations and street theater companies, activists and artists are working together to prepare hundreds of performances before audiences across the Middle East and North Africa. DDD is funded by the European Union under the regional program “MedCulture” and carried out by MRG, the Civic Forum Institute, the Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies, and the Prince Claus Fund For Culture and Development. Med Culture’s ultimate goal is to pave the way towards the development of institutional and social environments that will confirm culture as a vector for freedom of expression and sustainable development and to accompany partner countries in the south of the Mediterranean in the development and improvement of cultural policies and practices related to the culture sector.
