“Beautiful Resistance” – Al-Rowwad Theater Center
The Al-Rowwad Theater and Cultural Center in the Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem is a treasure in the midst of occupation and oppression. It's Executive Director is Dr. Abdelfattah Abusrour, who grew up in the camp, studied in Europe, and then returned to help the young people of Palestine transcend the physical, psychological, and political walls that are built all around them through the arts - drama, music, photography, and more, even through "creative play."
I'm proud to call Abed Abusrour a dear friend, and the Al-Rowwad Center one of the mission partners of Indiana Center for Middle East Peace.
