View the Results of the 2022 Edition of Maharat: Building Careers in Performing Arts


Ettijahat – Independent Culture is pleased to announce the names of participants in the technical training of Maharat’s 2022 edition, which will take place from September until December 2022. Members of the jury committee convened in July 2022 to evaluate the valid applications received from Lebanon, Syria, Sudan, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Morocco, and the United Arab Emirates. The jury’s discussion revolved around the expertise of applicants in the performing arts sector, their level of professional progress, and their professional goals. The 20 participants in this edition have been selected after the evaluation of applications and following interviews with those who qualified for the final stage.
In its statement, the jury stated that: “Priority was given to applicants holding degrees in performing arts or those who have acquired expertise in the arts sector. Applicants have a high level of expertise compared to those who took part in the first edition, which is only natural given the resurgence in artistic production and activity after two years of lockdowns. In addition to strengthening their technical skills, the training will provide participants with organizational skills and opportunities to take part in collective and creative work, as well as training and cooperation opportunities with local artistic groups and spaces.
Maharat’s team welcomes this year’s trainees. As trainer Hagop Derghougassian said, “Let there be light!”
