October 25, 2017
In partnership with UNESCO, Theatre Day Productions threw a public event (on September 25, 2017) for and with youth in Gaza. It was our participation in the UN International Youth Day campaign run NET-MED Youth. Theatre Day Productions’ movement presentation “IDENTITY” was the heart of the event. The performance was followed by the open debate session. The audience of young men and women exchanged their opinions about the performance and the main theme of the campaign “Youth Making Peace”. NET-MED youth groups brought the event on the social media platforms. For more, see this video
