It was one of the biggest controversies of last year’s Fringe festival. When it emerged an Israeli theatre company had received funding from its government to stage its show in Scotland there was outcry from those opposed to the country’s policies in the Middle-East.
Now a fund-raising campaign founded by the playwright David Greig that arose out of the storm of protest has unveiled a line up of Palestinian artists paid for by £10,000 in public donations.
Greig set up the crowd funding campaign to provide financial aid for shows and artists, notably from Palestine, who otherwise find it hard to come to the Edinburgh festivals. The initiative, called Welcome to the Fringe, has now unveiled a list of 12 artists supported by the campaign and events at two venues during this year’s festival.
Greig was instrumental in setting up the initiative following the controversy that in 2014 engulfed a show called The City by Incubator Theatre. The company was partially funded by Israel’s Ministry of Culture and a series of cultural figures signed a letter urging the Underbelly venue to reconsider staging the show.
Following a furore and an inability to find a new venue, eventually the show was cancelled.
In the aftermath Greig established the funding initiative “to do something positive” and to aid Palestinian – and other – artists.
The project has been developed through a collaboration between Forest Fringe, London’s Gate Theatre and the Greig, with support from the AM Qattan Foundation and the British Council.
The show resulting from this campaign is Welcome To The Fringe: Palestine, an all-day program of performance at the Forest Fringe on August 23. The playwright said he and the venues involved would now like to make the Welcome to the Fringe Fund a permanent fixture for the festival.
Greig said: “Forest Fringe, Northern Stage, The Gate and I all feel that the Welcome to the Fringe model could work for artists from other countries and groups who can’t share so easily in the Fringe’s open access – Syria? Uganda? Ukraine? “And so we would like to build on the funding success last year by developing a permanent Welcome To The Fringe Fund.”
The artists coming to the Fringe include storyteller, Fidaa Ataa; poet Alice Youssef; stand up comedian Ayman Nahas, two performance artists Farah Saleh and Yazan Eweidat, The Al Shaghaf music group and The Al Harah Theatre company. The centrepiece of the days events will be a performance of a newly devised play called Shakespeare’s Sisters by Al Harah. The performers will be in Edinburgh for a week and will be “buddied” with local fringe performers and on Sunday 23rd they will all perform at Forest Fringe.
Welcome to the Fringe will also show short films, an exhibition of photography from Palestine, and panel discussions. Some of the artists will perform at Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival in Doune. The other event is an evening cabaret show: Here Is The New From Over There by Northern Stage at Summerhall.
In this show Lorne Campbell and Northern Stage will be working with a mixed company of Arab and UK musician actors to make a show based on 25 specially commissioned Twitter feeds from 25 writers from Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and Israel. These twitter scripts will be merged with music, video and Traditional Arab storytelling techniques and Facebook feeds from the region to make an “alternative news tapestry, a nightly news show with a difference.”
Last year Greig explained some of his thinking behind the funding campaign.
He said: “It dispirits me knowing that my Palestinian theatre making friends are unable to come here and, it dispirits me to think that Israeli theatre makers who are brave enough to reject their government’s sponsorship, might be unable to come here as well. “In the light of all this, I felt the need to do something positive.”
Greig added: “Palestinian voices must be heard on their own terms. Palestinian theatre makers are massively disadvantaged. “It’s important that, in establishing this fund, we are careful to make sure its disbursement recognises this.”

I tell news, my news and World news. Today like many I am going through ‘Moments’ the same moments as you the reader and others. Be you family, friends, strangers reading this, I often look at people, our species, Countries, a People, 1 person, group of people, a belief, a myth, a legend in name, the woman next door to the poor kid in Syria being killed to that homeless guy I seen and all in-between, today. We all talk, I talk! I talk here, I give my opinions all over ShaunyNews platforms and for my Editor Ian here and on @ AceNewsSercies because, well that is the question right? because why? Why, why do we look, talk, question, forgive, forget, listen, pretend, lie, do, don’t do. Why can some be open like I am her and some not, LISTEN! No disrespect, I am living, I evolve so I ask questions, I can’t sit still, lol. I must improve, learn, understand, become, dream and learn to act on these emotions and wants. Often I can come across as hate or anger, this is never true, I am telling a news story or sharing or trying to understand life or a moment in my and others lives, no more, no less, but I am small, like the lyrics in the song below, you will see ❤ I am Shauny only, I am nothing, we are all equal, we are above nobody nor below anyone, well, this is how I believe it should be, how you see it is your call and I do respect that, do you respect others? Example only here, like me? I want some to care, others I don’t care but never hate. I reach out to people, some reach back and understand but some can’t reach back and don’t understand, frustrating? Of course, but I can only speak to that or any person and ask “Who is different” you or I then say “But really? Does it matter?” The answer of course is no, we co-exist on the same level but we are too apart often, but some are lucky to have love right here, some don’t. Some are love, some fake love, some can’t love due to pain from now or a past that trapped them, I only hope and pray you find what you need because all I do is look for me and ask your help, simple right? Life is easy, sadly we ALL can make it hard, this can change, the World is imperfect but we can be individually better. I generalize only for myself, I question my World, the World only because this is my path. What is wrong with that? Most days and, WHO CARES I have a baseline reader of 2,000 people, sometimes 50,000 and all in-between. I thank you for reading, replying, know I see you I hear you and I love you. Men will sit and mock me for these words, but why? I don’t mock back, if a man can’t be a man then he must understand why he needs the persona of tough guy. I AM a tough guy, I ‘COULD’ kill in the right circumstances but so could any man, BUT! Can we turn the coin around and not do that? Can we be calm when hate and intolerance are in our way? I can only speak as a man, the man I AM, but I do understand my Partner and some girls, of course I do, so do you but we can’t understand every person. So we try, but we must try to do it with love and care and slowly, if we get it. Top right you will see 1.2 MILLION people have read or visited me, that staggers and scared me a little because I never asked for this to happen, I just wrote one day and here I am. Look at it like life, we open a door our lives change, we turn left we love, we turn right we hate, we turn around and find love we move another way and find hate. Whatever you do, you choose, what direction you go, understand people ARE THERE to help you, why do I know this? Well I am very fortunate to have a woman beside me who hugs me and tells me “It’s ok” Its just “OK” …Are you ok? I pray so… x
In life I see people walk, but walking nowhere.
In life I see people educate themselves but not apply it in life
I see in life people becoming then stop, they become and don’t become anything more, they just become
People can be cruel, but I ignore, you should too. Whoever I speak too here
In life I see people talk, but not speaking any truths or real values, just empty words for the sake of a noise
In life, my life here in Scotland I see individual acts of love and kindness.
We make dreams but don’t live them, we see a dream, feel a dream but don’t act the dream nor try, why all this? I ask to learn yes…
In life, all over the World I speak to Hundreds of people in audio, type, email, blog, twitter, I ‘FEEL’ individual acts of kindness, don’t we all? Or have you forgot there is a whole World out there we are attached to no matter if we know it or like it, facts are we are all connected. As a species we can be cruel, hate, racist, religiously hateful, not all! but too many of us are. I see kindness, love, help, support and more. But often the bad outnumbers the good in our World. We are a species of talkers, some clever, some stupid, many like me trying to find our own way our own path in life, our journey. I can’t say I am clever or stupid because this will be what others will decide, be I like it or not, but in truth I don’t care what people think of me. I don’t throw hate, I don’t catch hate. I understand anger often, I understand happy always. We are all going somewhere and must respect each other’s path or journey. We can also help them on that journey but sadly some want to send people the wrong way or grab them the wrong way and force them up their own paths, this is wrong, I have seen and lived it. That is why I know now it’s wrong. We grow, we learn and every day I DEMAND I stand up and learn, help, feel, gather morality, learn NOT TO JUDGE! Yeah I am ‘Irony’ just the same as you. These are my opinions only, challenge me, challenge YOU. Live, smile, love, laugh, get drunk, make love, help peace happen or hate and be unhappy, your choice because I have choice the same as you. I was told “No I don’t understand you” recently by a person I love so much I cry, I cry in hope we can connect, if you read this what stops you? I ask with an open heart and mind. Challenge me, challenge you, challenge life. Choose life, choose what YOU want because I will, again without hate, just emotions that range from love, respect, tolerance, confusion also, I try not to challenge people but it’s hard so I question me 1st to understand another or life or the World. Wake up, or go to sleep. I have decided. I am VERY LUCKY to have an audience I can open up too, I respect and thank you ALL for the pleasure to do so, please know that. I write for peace and love, try it, even just in your mind. ❤
More love, less hate x
This song has a power I am STARTING to understand.
I will still beat a man. But I care also. We can be both, but NEVER hate.

My Paper: https://paper.li/ShaunyNews/1428021484
Dear American Government
America I have written many thinks about you. America, many of you believe you are the center of Humanity. You are one of the newest people on Earth, Gun control, Racism and Abortion are just 3 of the issues you are figuring out. You are a young nation but you control the World in many ways. Around 150 Million Christian Americans dictate the World we live in today, keep Palestine enslaved. Hamas are not and have never spoke for the VAST Majority of the people in Palestine, by it’s very truth is less than 5% of the population are Hamas, the rest are political victims and Religious casualties, controlled, cap in hand, land locked people, but still a population I guess. I don’t get angry over this issue, so please, if you are CHRISTIAN AMERICA, you have the the love of God in your heart and will love me and all I have to say because your bible told you to do tha….Em hold on, that isn’t right.
See what you guys away in SAFE America fail to understand is, over here in Europe many of us are in the exact same ethical position as the people in Palestine. I said before that when I was a kid I, along with my friends lived in fear of an Irish/London/Elite/Royal War. I understand the fear of this. I live in a Country with no English people at it’s political helm yet English Government control me and my Kin (Family and friends and all Scot’s.) Irish, Bosnian, Polish and many more understand control and oppression within the last 50 years. The same 50 years ago that the USA was the most racist Country on the planet. Below you will hear the truth that there are more Bl@ck men in Prison TODAY than were under slavery in 1850, but I don’t have to remind you America, you know your own History right? 😉 In my Country, to call another Bl@ck is JAIL, and rightly so, how dare we label another. How do you feel when I blame “Christian America?”
You are over the pond, safe but look over to where I live with 45% of our 7 Billion Earth populous in Europe or 0000.0000000001% if you live in Scotland and I am JUST FINE to be that low number let me tell you. When Scotland free’s herself form London rule and unethical non democratic people I want to stand in my City with my people and sing song’s of rejoice that were born out of murder, rape torture and control. Talk to Irish people you see the same.
Look closer to Home America, my History is as a child and over 1,000 years at least. Your’s is 200 years give or take a decade or 3. You are blind to War’s you MUST FELL you impose o the World. A Russian draft on Iran’s nuclear ENERGY process allowed Europe, China, Russia, Australia, Africa and the USA avoided the USA from bringing War to Iran. We made peace and in your loving Religious hearts you MUST see that as a sign from your God of peace. In Palestine you fail to see the truth. Again all I can show you is what your 5% American World, a VERY SMALL portion of this World, 5% of all People. Yet you are Happy to see War over here from the safe view of the safety of the USA from bombs and suicide bombers. 9/11 was one day, a VERY SAD DAY I STILL CRY OVER. Over here we have lived through this for 2 centuries. You know NOTHING nor CARE what we think. You think the US of A is the center of our World. Sadly your Dollar is being held up by the Bin Laden Family, yeah! The same Bin Laden who Seal Team 6 killed on the spot and threw into a sea of sharks. Check I have the image to prove Bin Laden Died.
As you can clearly see, the official image the USA leaked to the media on the far right is indeed a Dead Bin Laden. The image in the middle is some stranger and the 1st image is….If you can’t see it you don’t want to. This is the reality of the lies being covered over your eyes, you believe it because the News told you. If anyone believes the above image is Bin Laden? Please stop being human and go live in a field eating grass. This is not to you America this is to your Media, Government and Religion. Divide and Conquer was first used by the Roman Empire, then the Soviet Union. the Ottoman EmpireOttoman Empire and the English Empire. All off these “Empires” fell, all were over 50% of Humanity. You are 5%, your Dollar is falling, Jade Helm and ISIS are your new 9/11 and your God has failed you and our World.
Below is a video I CAN PROVE SHOWS AMERICA IS CHANGING AND STARTING TO UNDERSTAND LOVE, EMPATHY, PEACE AND MORE. But you deny it’s essence. LET ME BE CLEAR, if you agree with me you are awake, if you disagree you are asleep. Many off you just abuse me, I try to ask why then you block me. You can’t debate. But you know about the Roman Empire, then the Soviet Union. the Ottoman EmpireOttoman Empire and the English Empire, so you are a clever bunch, your education system is that good you are 37th in literacy. Basically Scotland, Norway, China, Russia, Iran, Palestine are more aware and cleverer than you are. These are factual figures, go check, you are so darn clever so you know how to source information. Below is something that moved me in a BIG way and I felt it in my Hearts as did the people sitting then standing in tears crying at guilt or anger or through murder, rape torture and control. Bl@ck Gospel Choirs sing in rejoice and love. White Christian people who have never been harmed EVER sit and talk about each other and sing the most boring songs you can know, while Bl@ck America ROCKS!!! Born through murder, rape, control and slavery. From slavery came love. What happened? I won’t stop writing this because I come from one of the top 5 Cleverest Countries on Earth and you are stupider than say, Mexico, YES!!! Mexico are more clever than you.
I will now prove everything I said gives me and YOU in the USA hope that things can, will and are changing. Below is probably, for me at least the most powerful emotion I have seen from America in my life. White and Bl@ck people alike stood, clapped and cried at what you are about to view below, a song and 2 American men men, 1 a Muslim who managed to show Humanity (Our World and all the people who can afford to watch the Oscars that some PEOPLE in the USA are evolving. Sadly, yes, people who love God want to stop this process and all the other process’s I have mentioned above. Don’t be the World joke America “STAND UP”..”HANDS UP” …”HEARTS OPEN” and walk into the World I know and love alone with the rest of the developed World. You ARE waking up but the asleep are sending the rest back to sleep. I love America, I love Americans, my main room here in my Scottish Castle is a shrine to the USA. Why? You can hate me or ask me. You can agree and tell me why or you can disagree and tell me why. Or you can do the EASY THING and hate me 🙂
HERE I PRESENT THE TRUTH THAT THE USA, AND MOST OF IT’S PEOPLE KNOW CHRISTIAN AMERICA HOLD THEM BACK, WHEY AWAKEN SLOWLY
MORE LOVE, LESS HATE………………..
