Uri Noy Meir facilitates workshops in theater and creative transformation. He was born in Israel and did his BA in Theater and Spanish and Latin American studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Uri is a member of Combatants for Peace, a movement started jointly by Palestinians and Israelis who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence and decided to put down their guns and to fight for peace. He currently coordinates media for ImaginAction.
Uri has trained with renowned Theater of the Oppressed (T.O.) practitioners such as Chen Alon, Barbara Santos, and Sanjoy Ganguly. Uri worked in Israel with University students and political activists, offering transformative workshops using T.O. Uri has also led workshops in Nepal, India, Italy and, with the ImaginAction team, in Northern Ireland.
Uri offers workshops that integrate T.O. practices with participatory photography–click here for more information and a short video on his process.
