Al Hannouneh is one of the most esteemed traditional folklore societies in the Arab world. Formed in 1993 as a cultural response to the threat of the loss of identity among Palestinian youth, Al Hannouneh has dedicated itself to preserving the cultural heritage of the Palestinian people both in Palestine and in the diaspora. It is driven to teach and train the youth about their own cultural heritage, particularly through dabke dance, Arabic music and dramatic choreography that tells the Palestinian narrative through artistic expression. Al Hannouneh also functions as a cultural society that preserves craft forms such as traditional dress embroidery with its many creative variations based on village of origin.
