Summary of Palestine Art Center:
Street artist, Banksy, said “there’s nothing more dangerous than someone who wants to make the world a better place,” and that’s exactly what the Nabus Dance School aims to do. Make the world a better place for the youth of Nablus. The children and youth of Palestine are living in a world, and a conflict, they never asked to be born into. The best way to cure oppression is not through fighting, war, or aggression. The best cure is through art. Creativity. Expression.
By establishing an art school in Nablus, children and young adults in the city will have a positive and creative outlet for their freedom of expression; they will be able to not only showcase their talents and engage with the local community, but also gain a sense of pride in who they are by learning the traditional dance, music and crafts of their culture.
By working together in a creative environment, the Art School will encourage camaraderie among young Palestinians and promote community spirit and teamwork. They will have the opportunity to transcend conflict, and define themselves to the world as the motivated, cultured, and creative humans they are.
