As a means of promoting creative dialogue between cultures and nations, the Arts Center has been annually hosting the Creative Forum for Independent Theater Groups (Euro- Mediterranean) for the past five years. The forum has two main objectives: providing educational and theater training programs and spreading awareness and familiarity with contemporary theater trends. During the past years, the Creative Forum has established a distinguished artistic reputation and fame amongst European and Mediterranean countries. Through its activities (performances, dialogues, publications, and training programs), it has played an additional role as a creative and pedagogical initiative. The Creative Forum has adopted art as a developmental method on dual levels, cultural and cognitive and social and political, thus rendering arts an integral part of everyday life.
