Ghirass Cultural Center

During the one-month summer camp of Ghirass Cultural Center in Bethlehem (www.ghirass.org), 13 trainees gave in total 42 music workshops to more than 150 children. The children, age 6-12, are divided into six groups. The oldest groups sing songs, dance, rap and play Arabic percussion. The younger groups sing, dance, play musical games and rhythms with sticks. Every day the workshops end with an activity for all the children together: on the stage every group shows the others what they have learned during the day, for example a dance or a song. This is also the moment when all the children can sing together: children from Bethlehem, Beit Jallah, Dheisheh camp and children with learning difficulties, the young ones and the older children, they all experience the beauty of singing together!
