The prize money for this year's Prize of the German ITI formed the basis for a donation to the Zoukak Theatre Beirut.
Together with donations from the members of the ITI, € 5,200 could be transferred at the beginning of June. Maya Zbib, founding director of the group and ambassador for the World Theatre Day in the ITI anniversary year 2018 wrote: „I am so moved by your initiative. It's very heartwarming to see that we are not alone here and that we are indeed part of a larger theatre family, that is present in solidarity, and attentively listening, and willing to make extra efforts, even in such difficult global times, to support peer artists. I thank you sincerely and send my deepest recognition to the ITI members and affiliates; this makes us happy and proud.”
