ORGANISE A
FUNDRAISING EVENT

Event organised by Jacque Lauritsen in Denmark

When The Freedom Theatre was raided and destroyed in December, groups worldwide organised fundraising events so that the venue could replace its equipment.  Both for The Freedom Theatre and other cultural venues this financial support is crucial as there is no way otherwise to build back after attacks, it also helps inform audiences what has happened.

BUILD DIGITAL COLLABORATION 

THEATRE FOR EVERYBODY in Gaza and THEATRE AZ in London began a long-term collaboration in 2007 to allow artists to travel to both places. At the time, Israel banned their blockade of Gaza, restricting all movement. Instead, they began a digital collaboration between artists and audiences in both places. This continued during Israel's genocide in Gaza in the form of Messages From Gaza.
