These artists have agreed to share their art to support the work of Freedom Theatre in Palestine.  All monies raised will go directly to Freedom Theatre and the necessary work they are doing in Palestine.We hope that you too can support this event by attending and showing your support for Freedom Theatre, Palestine.I sincerely hope that by sharing our art with others here in the UK we can help make a difference to fellow artists in Palestine.We would really love to see you at the Contact Theatre in Manchester on Friday 16th September 2011.Please pass this message onto friends, colleagues and artists.In solidarity,
Madani Younis
