Event Objectives:

The event aims to highlight the critical role of performing arts in engaging with global social and political issues, especially in times of civil unrest, political agitation, and violence. Through the lens of theatre, we explore how creative artists can lend their voices to address the challenges facing our world today.

This program promises to be a thought-provoking evening that not only celebrates the richness of theatrical expression but also underscores the importance of art as a medium for social dialogue and change.

We look forward to welcoming our guests to The Creative Hub for an unforgettable International Theatre Day celebration.
