Through the Multimedia programme, The Freedom Theatre aims to encourage young women and men in Jenin to explore new forms of creative self-expression through film, photography and creative writing. More intensive training is also offered to trainees who develop skills in teaching others.
The photography courses put an emphasis on storytelling and self-expression through pictures. Participants produce their own exhibitions, in addition to working with the Creative Writing groups to prepare photos for each issue of the youth magazine Voices.

Our film unit is set up as a collective space where novices and trainees are able to practice their craft alongside professionals who mentor them. It aims to nurture new voices and tell stories that reflect the humanity and truth of the Palestinian situation, far beyond the clichés and biases of mainstream media.
A selection of our films are available on our youtube channel.

Participants in the Creative Writing workshops explore their own imagination and ability to translate experiences and observations into different forms of text. They compose articles, poetry, essays, short stories and other pieces that are included in The Freedom Theatre’s youth magazine Voices, which is distributed throughout the local community and is also available online.
