Speaking to The Daily Star, Minwal director and founder Jad Hakawati and program manager Roaa Bzeih stressed that access to arts education is important for youth across Lebanon and the wider region, not only for Syrian and Palestinian young people here.They stressed the importance of programs like SIBA in actively engaging young people, giving "them a platform to share their thoughts, their dreams and fears and put them onstage".Theater workshops and performances like this one promote freedom of expression among displaced young people, allowing them to take possession of the representation of their own experiences. Hakawati and Bzeih are working to expand the SIBA program to reach more youth across Lebanon's various regions.
