Cultural Programs Endowment

The Cultural Program Fund

RIWAQ designs and facilitates cultural, educational, and community-based activities that foster participation and engagement of local communities in the rehabilitation projects taking place in their town, and are committed to raising awareness of the power of cultural heritage and its ability to bring people closer together.

Our activities are diverse and target different groups. We work with school children on writing and illustration; we facilitate concerts; we organize hikes and environmental exploration activities; we organize voluntary clean up and tree-planting days; we host trainings and capacity building activities for women and local residents; and participate in a broad range of social and cultural festivals and events. Riwaq started the Riwaq Biennale and co-founded Qalandiya International, both multidisciplinary platforms that question the life and practices of Palestinian communities and beyond.  

The cultural program fund with a capital of USD 250,000 will generate an annual income of USD 25,000. This will enable Riwaq to implement its cultural program and take part in the cultural activities carried by Riwaq’s partnering institutions.
