The Freedom Bus, an initiative of The Freedom Theatre, uses interactive theatre and cultural activism to bear witness, raise awareness and build alliances throughout occupied Palestine and beyond.

During Freedom Bus events, Palestinian actors and musicians invite true stories from communities across Palestine and subsequently transform each account into a piece of improvised theatre. This approach, known as Playback Theatre, has proved to be a powerful artistic vehicle for witness, solidarity and advocacy on a grassroots level.
In addition to Playback Theatre, Freedom Bus events include solidarity walks and community visits, live music, workshops and educational talks.
The Freedom Bus also organizes multi-day stays and building and accompaniment work in communities subjected to home demolitions, settler violence and military aggression.
At the heart of all Freedom Bus activities is the belief that community engagement, active solidarity and creative expression are vital in the journey towards a more just, peaceful and egalitarian world.
Endorsers of the Freedom Bus include Alice Walker, Angela Davis, John Berger, Judith Butler, Luisa Morgantini, Maya Angelou, Mairead Maguire, Mazin Qumsiyeh, Noam Chomsky, Omar Barghouti and Peter Brook. The Freedom Bus is also endorsed by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC), Students for Justice in Palestine and the Highlander Research and Education Centre. A range of other Palestinian and International artists, activists, academics and organizations have also endorsed the Freedom Bus.
