THE HAKAWATIYEH COMES TO TOWN!  (Hakawatiyeh in Arabic means ”female storyteller”). Arabic women take place at the public storytelling scenes. Language: English
Having spent hundreds of years telling folk tales at home for family and children, Arab women have recently taken their storytelling talent to the streets and theaters of Arab towns and villages. The ”Hakaya” network of storytellers and organizations involved in promoting  opportunities for contemporary Arab storytellers, and primarily women storytellers, to tell their stories in the public space. This has not only had an impact on the status of women in the public sphere, but also on the kind of stories that are being told. It is not just about a ”feminist” or ”feminine” perspective, but rather about the woman’s body as it tells its own story through the hakawatiyeh in the city squares.

On stage:
Serene Huleileh, director of the Arab Education Forum will talk about the impact that Arab women storytellers have had on the discourse pertaining to stories and storytelling in the Arab world. Sally Shalabi, storyteller from Jordan, and Fidaa Ataya, storyteller from Palestine will both tell how becoming a storyteller has helped them reclaim the public space in their respective countries.
