-How do you evaluate for us the role of the Ministry of Culture in the UAE and the ministries it includes in the development of the children’s theater?

The Ministry of Culture and Youth is limited to supporting theatre groups in the UAE with very small amount! That focus on the children.

At all, it’s not in its agenda at all, and we ask its staff to draw up a detailed plan in the performing arts.

Great developments in the world’s performing arts techniques, and really needs to mobilize efforts and budgets

Dedicated to that.

We should also point out that the Ministry of Education is also responsible for monitoring special budgets for students.

Especially in public schools to have theatrical performances and include theater as part of the learning system

School, since there are many benefits for our children, and the need to encourage private schools to do so as well

Love, tolerance, and conflict resolution with dramatic treatments for the child’s audience in refuges campus and campus under war

Facing wars,, violence, etc.

Theatrical production

On the world stage, there are a lot of characters associated with world-class tales, but

Locally in the UAE, any Characters is worth mentioning.

-Are there other elements that support the children’s theater as well?

There are many elements, the most important of which is the need to involve the private sector in terms of adopting offers as commercial sponsorships.

However, it should not be funding for a promotional campaign to support me, the community responsibility of government institutions

And commercial and non-profit as well.

To promote cultural life of all kinds with an arrow always by presenting the children’s theater in its finest forms, the theater is one of the most important tools for the development of society, and to raise the young to prepare them to be ready to face the difficulties of life inFuture.
