The Team

The Freedom Theatre is a Palestinian organisation and as such most of its staff come from the Jenin community. The theatre also engages international staff and volunteers on short and long-term basis.
In addition to the Palestinian organisation, The Freedom Theatre is supported by a foundation that has a separate, international Board.
