  • Description

    Description

    My name is H'ala and I'm the founder for a centre for culture and arts in Nablus-Palestine I have completed my master degree in philosophy and arts from the Freie Universität Berlin . I founded the place with the help of a group of Artists friends who shared the same passion with me in changing kids lives by teaching them art and engaging them and their families in a verity of creative events.

    This is an art and culture organization that mainly aims at providing music, dancing and language activities for kids between 3 and 15 years old.

    We offer dancing classes such as Ballet - hiphop and Dabka. We are also open to any kind of new dancing styles and new dancing ideas.

    We also offer music classes in the flowing instruments (Piano, Guitar, Oud, and Nay) we work with all the students on a music curricular of our own and we open the registration on September of each year and we continue in giving the classes until May of each year.

    This was founded in January 2017 by a group of young artists and entrepreneurs, the founders believes in the importance of art activities for kids especially in the area of Nablus.

    We also recently have a new (and very small) addition to the team in the shape of a Kitten called Mimi (Meme) who generally helps with cuddles sessions and love giving in the house.

    Help

    Now we are looking for people with skills in Art (painting and drawing), Gardening and Building that can help us realize our dream as we are slowly renovating our 19th century Ottoman house. (Carpentry skills, paint murals and signs can be very helpful).
    We want to create art on the old stairs, old kitchen and old bathroom and that’s why we are looking for passionate artists that can transfer the Building into an art exhibition.


    We prefer volunteers that have:
    • Unique point of view
    • Dynamic drawings
    • Strong comedic sensibilities… with an edge
    • Strong draftsmanship
    • Versatility
    • Amazing story telling abilities


    We also need volunteers as teachers assistance for our main teachers in the music, language, arts and dancing programs.
    We (in Palestine) in general suffer from a lack in dancing, we need ballet teacher with an ability to work with:
    1- Kids from 3 to 15 years old, to give classes every day and make small dancing workshops.
    2- To participate in events such as parents day and trips.
    3- Have at least one year experience working in the art and music so they would be able to make a small presentation of students.


    We need volunteers working as a close-knit team. We need people to be organised, energetic and enthusiastic with the activities that are carried out to make sure that the kids have the best possible time with us here!

    It is important to mention that our students pay a very small amount as fees for the classes which we use to cover our basic running costs.
