Established in 2007 to support creative workshop leaders to visit the camps and lead various programs on the ground.
Over the years, the SAF has helped fund:
- introductory acting & film production
classes led by Caravanserai Studio.
- 10-day master workshop for musicians,
with Mohamed Hafsi, musician, composer
- two-week long youth theatre workshop led by Olive Branch Theatre. The theatre group, led by our trustee Becky Hall, has returned to the Saharawi refugee camps for further training workshops with youth, disabled and victims of land mines.
- two 3-week workshops in crafts design from discarded plastic bottles, by Florie Salnot, Royal College of Arts, which resulted in the design project Plastic Gold. Shortlisted for the Jameel Prize 2013, Plastic Gold was exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum (London) from Dec 11, 2013 until April 21, 2014
