Paving the way for change

Madani and partner Search for Common Ground, have taken a dramatic approach to empower societies across Syria, particularly focusing on female equality in the country.

This project, Paving the Way, which was formed in 2016, tackles gender awareness through the influence of drama, a popular art form that attracts millions of people and interacts with everyday life.

Our research team travels the country to find new ideas to turn into contemporary Syrian drama productions. We work with professional writers, directors and actors to provide the best quality work that will attract the right audience, portray the key messaging and most importantly raise awareness of the issues at the heart of the campaign.

Most importantly, we believe this is a joint effort between Paving the Way and the Syrian organisations and theatre professionals we work with. We will fund the work but it will still remain theirs.
