A Euro-Arab project for story telling

Hakaya is a euro-Arab project that was created in 2006 to celebrate the art of « story telling » in theatre and to promote art, reading and writing, for identity building and intercultural dialogue.

Hakaya project gathers artists, historians, story tellers and instructors through a network, residences, workshops and an itinerant festival in order to tell different kind of stories.

Hakaya gathers different organisations, individuals and groups who share a common interest in promoting story telling as a tool for a better social cohesion and a healthier development of individuals in these societies. For the members, developping story telling is a key solution in the literacy and identity, and inter-cultural dialogue, development.
