Memory Tales is an organization consisting of artist and educators who believe art can influence people’s lives in a positive way. Coming from the Middle East, Europe and the U.S.A. we strive to use creative ideas to communicate the important issues facing today’s world. We have extensive backgrounds in live theater productions, video documentaries, sculpture and photography, and try to create works of art that stimulate dialogue and social change. We believe that art has the power to influence people, cultures and societies.

Memory Tales founding members are interested in finding alternative solutions to major world issues. Our motivation is to use art as a tool to find common ground so that people, religions and countries celebrate their commonality rather than their differences. We have collaborated with universities, schools, non-profit organizations, theatres, galleries, and museums who are involved in projects that promote social change.
