'The 3rd Intifada will be

a cultural Intifada'

Join a global artistic movement!

Three months ago, the producer of The Freedom Theatre Mustafa Sheta was taken by the Israeli army and continues to be held in prison without charge or trial.

In response to the question “What can we do?”, about Mustafa’s arrest and the genocide in Palestine, we are launching The Cultural Intifada.

From demands against cultural genocide, testimonies from artists under attack, learning resources, a creative toolbox and a guide for performance protest - there is something for everyone to stand up in solidarity for Palestinian rights and against artistic censorship.

ABOUT US

 

The Cultural Intifada is put together by The Freedom Theatre and Artists On The Frontline.

We have collaborated with, reference, or point you in the direction of the research, creative actions, and cultural outputs of hundreds of artists, academics, activists, journalists, protest movements, and human rights groups. They are named next to their work, which is independent of us and each other.

The website's main image is from Artists Against Apartheid by Kael Abello. By hovering over other images, you can see the names of those who created them.

We thank the many people who continue to inspire, feedback, and help develop this project.

THE FREEDOM THEATRE

The Freedom Theatre is one of the worlds most exciting political theatres. Based in Jenin Refugee camp in Palestine it was co-founded by Zakaria Zubeidi leader of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and actor and director Juliano Mer Khamis. The theatre was established at the end of the second intifada and is famous for its use of cultural resistance and using arts to fight for justice and a free Palestine.​

The artistic and practical challenges have been immense, the building has been attacked by the Israeli Army, death threats have been sent and members of the theatre have been arrested, interrogated, imprisoned and psychologically tortured. On April 4th 2011 Juliano was murdered on the doorstep of the theatre.
