The Women’s Development Centre continues its activities aimed at addressing the problems and unfair situations faced by girls and women in Tulkarem in Palestine through arts such as painting and theater.
Within this context, the Center provided painting classes to girls aged between 12 and 16 years over a period of three months. The classes were facilitated by artist Iyad Zeidan.
Also and in cooperation with Al Qattan Foundation, the Centre is currently training 12 women on playwriting. Several brainstorming sessions have been carried out to identify the problems or issues that women will tackle in the plays they will write.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
