What was the funding used for ?

The funding was used to buy equipment that was used for documentation, editing, and promotional material for Theater Is A Must Forum's 2019 6th edition that encompassed showcasing and hosting 8 performances, 3 public events and 5 workshops from Europe, Egypt, and the Arab Region. The 6th edition of the forum is themed “Crossing Over, تجاوز” and was held from March 27th till April 4th 2019 in Alexandria. This edition focused on contemporary productions that discuss our contemporary reality of wars, immigration, and refuge with an emphasis on cities, borders, and identities. This edition attempted to explore how we, as global citizens in different contexts, deal with this common reality. What urges us to embrace the other? Does the other threaten our identity? How high are our fences? For whom do we raise them up, or bring them down? As radical right-wing movements are globally re-emerging and gaining momentum with a strong purpose to spread hatred towards the other and to close nations back onto themselves using fascist discourse and utilizing nationalism and populism, this temporary platform serves as an open space where such discourse will be questioned, scrutinized, and countered.

How did this funding contribution provide sustainability to your organisation and improve the quality of the implementation of your work ?

Equipment: (Editing unit Macbook Pro, Digital multi port adapter, Cannon DSLR camera, Printer, hard drive) This equipment made it easier for us to document and advertise our work. They became a stable dependable resource at our disposal for this edition of the forum and they will remain so for future projects.
