TAM 2 - Theatre and Multimedia Arts
The 2nd phase of the project intends to consolidate a model of intervention in cultural and artistic expression. It intends to consolidate the dual strategy proposed in the first pilot phase of the project:ü Using culture as a useful tool to increase young people's sensitivity to values such as human rights and intercultural dialogue. The involvement of new generations through theatre and the resulting increase in the production of culture represent the strategic element of the Project;ü Develop and implement a training model for youth, aiming to create the concrete contexts in which they are able to work together, doing cultural activities and producing an active culture, with the aim of promoting their development and their social and work inclusion.

During the first phase of activity, it was decided to focus primarily on theatrical component considering the pilot nature of the initiative. In the second stage we will deepen the training in multimedia arts as part of the training path implemented.
The idea is based on the ability with which young Palestinians are already using new technologies. The same technologies that accompany them in daily life can become their means of production. With particular reference to the artistic field, the ability in using simple and relatively low-cost tools can help, simplify and in some cases make the work possible.
In general, given the experience made so far, we consider the Palestinian National Theatre as the frame of an artistic laboratory where youth can develop their creativity in many forms.
The project is structured on three components: capacity building and rehabilitation of institutions and local organizations involved in the implementation of the project; promoting the rights of adolescents and youth with emphasis on gender issues and territorial development (with the involvement of local theatres, already available and operating in the country); the artistic interchange both among Palestinian theatres, and relations with Italy and networking in the Mediterranean basin.
The main area of activity is the training. The planning of the action is very simple:
1) Launching of the announcement
2) Collection of the application forms
3) Selection of the students
4) Summer intensive training:
v Theatre: I level
