Tell Me a Story Project


“Children, in bed … Tell me a story … Once upon a time …” In this period of confinement, despite an abundance of resources made available free of charge, content adapted to the local context and of quality are paradoxically rare. It is in this line that the project “Tell me a story” fits. It will be a mini-series designed for young Palestinian audiences, interpreted by local professional actors and broadcast free of charge on social media.

During 8 weeks, 3 episodes of 5 to 10 minutes each will be broadcast online weekly. 6 actors will be selected for the grant. Each one will perform 4 stories, 2 existing ones, chosen from French or Palestinian culture, and 2 original ones, created by oneself or by authors selected by Tamer Institute.

Creativity in interpreting the stories will be the key to make the listening experience as captivating as possible!

In this period of epidemic, the work should not require the use of an external partner or a trip away from home : home office will be encouraged.

  • A set of 2 stories that could be reinterpretations of existing stories, French translated in Arabic or Palestinian, or original creations of your own
