Open-calls and Opportunities
The Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center is located in a beautiful house in Ramallah that dates back to the early twentieth century. The Center was established in May 1996 by the Palestinian Ministry of Culture and it was registered as a non-profit and non-governmental institution in 1998. Since its inception, the Center has paid a special attention to the Palestinian historical narrative on one hand and contemporary cultural and artistic practices on the other hand.
The Center in its name hosts the Jerusalemite educator, pedagogue and intellectual Khalil Sakakini. Historically with its programming, it created and facilitated platforms for Palestinian art and artists until it became a transit bridge. In its spaces, the Center hosted the poet Mahmoud Darwish during his work as an editor of Al-Carmel Literary Magazine.
Within the past 25 years, the Center accumulated a rich experience leading and facilitating various cultural projects, events and productions that enriched both the Center and the community around it and strengthened the relationship between the two.
