Noa Boam will bring a different tone and flavor to the Festival. Born and raised in Jerusalem, her stories “draw on diverse cultures, her own Jewish heritage and personal experience” that will “highlight our similarities, celebrate our differences, and encourage curiosity, awareness, and acceptance”. Noa Baum is an award-winning storyteller and author who presents internationally. She works with diverse audiences ranging from The World Bank and prestigious universities to inner city schools and detention centers. Born and raised in Israel, she was an actress at Jerusalem Khan Theater, studied with Uta Hagen in NYC and holds an M.A. from NYU. Noa offers a unique combination of performance art and practical workshops that focus on the power of narrative to heal across the divides of identity. In a world where peace is a challenge in the schoolyard and beyond, Noa’s work builds bridges of understanding and compassion.
