Reminder to spread the word- D&F Academy invites applications for Theater Project!

Are you excited about reaching out to people through the medium of theater? Do you want to start a venture that will impact people in your home country? Or do you know passionate actors, social workers, activists or interested young people who share this dream?

The D&F Academy offers fully funded fellowships for our Theater Project in Hamburg, Germany, with Project Friend author and director Nils Daniel Finckh.
Applications are still open to young people aged 18 and 28 worldwide. The one-year program is an opportunity for both professionals and young people who believe in change through creative processes and the power of theater action.
The chosen Fellows will spend ten weeks from April to June 2013 in Hamburg. During that time, they investigate and learn with their project Friend and eminent experts how they can use theater as a catalyst to give people a voice and to make social change in their societies happen.

Final application deadline is due January 7, 2013 (10 am, CET)
