Mission and Objectives

Amongst the priorities and objectives of the Amman International Theater Festival are the creation of a free space for independent theater groups and independent artists. It is a known fact that all theater festivals organized in the region are considered government activities, inviting government theater companies, except in some rare cases. In addition, those festivals are run by people who are usually with shallow talents in both the creative and the technical side of the activity.

Main Projects / Activities

Some of the objectives of the festival cover the area of encouraging young artists with direct support and funding, whenever the financial situation allows that. It also provides them with the chance to participate and interact with other artists from all over the world.
The festival also gives special attention to continuous training where tens of workshops have been held in the different fields related to arts and cultural projects management.
