Engaged Artists address Refugee Crisis through Puppetry

  • Name of organisation / initiative supported: Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation
  • Start date: 1 December 2014
  • End date: 30 September 2015

Initiative summary:

The Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation is tackling political and social challenges produced by the massive influx of Syrian and the presence of Palestinian refugees in their interactive performances across Lebanon.

Facilitating grass-roots & socio-political communication between communities represents a gap in current donor funding, which primarily focuses on humanitarian needs.
