The Be’er Sheva Theatre operates a unique Educational department. The arts can be an important tool for teaching people to cope with the world and its challenges in an innovative way. The art of theatre uniquely combines creativity and originality with the need to interact with others. The language of theatre, which flows between reality and imagination, can help participants approach issues that are too painful or difficult to face directly. As the artistic tool closest to daily reality, theatre can reflect social phenomena and present different solutions to problems facing individuals or society as a whole.
Operating such a unique department, the theatre becomes involved in the local arena. We believe that the theatre should be an integral part of the local community life. The educational department serves as a link between the theatre and the Negev, running a myriad of projects each year including empowerment workshops and working with disadvantaged populations.
