The "Nemashim" Project brings together Israeli Jewish and Arab students who have graduated from high school and use theatre as a means to develop dialogue, mutual respect and understanding. We are living together in the middle of a terrible, destructive conflict and we feel that a way out is by developing peaceful resistance to violence, realising the ideals of equality and co-existence in a mixed group and by using theatre to advance these ideals.
The group is made of 6 Israelis of Jewish and Arab origin who live together in a form of a commune, within Haifa, a town of a mixed population. Together we prepare and create theatre programs that focus on promoting peace and understanding, under the guidance of Uri Shani and Shadi Fachr Al-Din, who have extensive experience in work of theatre and Jewish-Arab dialogue and meetings.
We started the course of the Jewish-Palestinian Stage Tutorial Year in August 2005. We seek funding for this project and would be very grateful for your support. We therefore ask you to consider making this project a reality and thank you in advance of your support.
