The 9th Hakaya Festival

The 9th Hakaya Festival

 2 – 7 Sept 2016.

Al Balad Theater & the Arab Education Forum presents the 9th Hakaya Festival in Amman & Provinces between the time of 2 – 7 Sept 2016.

HAKAYA is a Euro-Arab program connecting different organizations, individuals, and groups who share a commitment to reclaiming the centrality of stories in the healthy growth of individuals and societies. The HAKAYA project has been celebrating for several years the art of “telling” and “narrative” in theatre, the arts, reading and writing promotion, formation of identity, and inter-cultural dialogue. The vision that brings all the project partners together is a view of reading, writing, and narrative/telling as tools that develop an individual’s “inner world” and constitute the threads that weave the social and cultural fabric amongst people: tools that do not link the mind with the text, but the mind with life.
