Hossam Madhoun

Hossam is the founder of Gaza's Theater for Everybody, which has a goal of producing dramatic productions appealing to a broad population. Due to the dire conditions in Gaza, productions are rare these days. Instead, he and his partner have dedicated their energies to drama  and other types of therapy programs for traumatizedc children at a local nonprofit for which he is a project coordinator. However, through a collaboration with London's Az Theatre, Hossam is working with We Are Not Numbers youth to produce drama vignettes shared with audiences overseas. "I am not a writer, I am a theater maker, but from time to time I write," he says. However, we think you'll agree he is a gifted poet.
