Sharjah  :  FUNN, the Sharjah-based organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting media arts learning among children and youth, has announced an exciting new approach for its annual FUNNtastic Winter Camp, taking place from December 18 – 22.

Being held at the AlJada multipurpose indoor hall in Sharjah, the camp themed ‘Into the Spotlight!’, will take a slight departure from its usual format to host actors, filmmakers and artists to informally share their experiences and skills with the participants over the five days.

Students will learn from the experts about the intricacies of performing for both the stage and screen in a relaxed atmosphere that will stimulate creativity and inspire confidence. Guided by Emirati actor-producer Hassan Rajab; theater director and actor Abdullah Saleh; and Mohamed Haji, a theatre director of note, the sessions will enable participants to initiate conversations with these experts, learn from their interactions with them, and turn their creative ideas into reality.

The camp will include competitions, motivational video screenings, acting and art workshops and Q&A sessions with the experts.

Sheikha Jawaher bint Abdullah Al Qasimi, Director of FUNN and SIFF, said: “In line with our goals to develop the UAE’s creative industries by empowering the nation’s youth in media arts, FUNN brings back its FUNNtastic winter camp, which will offer participants a golden opportunity to learn from experts in the fields of acting, directing, production ad art in an engaging, interactive and informal atmosphere, which will not only help them hone their talent but also boost their confidence which is essential for succeeding in this industry”.

“Memorable performances, both on stage and behind the screen, involves inputs from creatives from varied fields of expertise. Through this camp we aim to give the participating youth an overview of what it takes to specialise in this highly creative industry, while honing their acting skills,” she added.
