Introduction
• “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and
poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” Leonardo
da Vinci
• Art has the power to transform, to illuminate, to educate,
inspire and motivate. Harvey Fierstein
• “My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of
the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it
is, before all, to make you see.” Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim

Reflections & impacts
a) Reinforcing the power of language & creative arts in FLT (A &E)
1. Academic course plans & syllabuses of FL courses will
include poetry, drama, stories, cartoons, pictures,
paintings, pictures, music, songs, chants, folklore tales,
debating skills, etc.)
2. All forms of creative arts will become a norm in FLT
classes: schools & universities
3. dramatizing stories & plays and reciting poetry will
become an essential part of teaching literary courses

[grant reference AH/L006936/1]
Linguistic & pedagogical Reflections
4. language & creative arts are seen as powerful ways of
expressing resistance & asserting national & cultural identity
5. Armed resistance is not the only way oppressed people may
use to regain their national rights & national identity
regardless UN Charter’s Article 51, concerning self-defense.
6. Being a multilingual has become a power & using creative
arts has also become a power. Hence IUG Eng Dept is
trying to find fund for preparing quality rehearsal theatre
room.

c) Enhancing Mutual cultural/ interfaith understanding:
1. both multilingual presenters and students have successfully and confidently
presented model examples of successful intercultural and interfaith
communication which crossed the borders of the three monotheist religions and
reinforced intercultural tolerance especially among young besieged students.
2. exposed 100s of Palestinian young students to distinguished native linguists from
different reputable universities with different cultural and religious background.
These students wanted more and more of such insightful linguistic and cultural
activities that build bridges of understanding and cooperation. Some key questions
my 160 first year students whom I teach oral communication raised:
• Why do these famous non-Arabs and non-Muslims linguists sympathise with
us as us, Palestinians?
• Why did all of the non-Arab Speakers in the symposium greet us in Arabic?

number of questions about each picture.

Conclusions: long term implications
3. Such activities have long term implications:
4. Such created unprecedented awareness of vitality & universality of art works esp
arts of resistance as a powerful means
• to enhance FL pedagogy
• to release tension, worries and anxiety
• to gain freedom & justice
• to traverse the border of languages, accents and dialects
• to build bridges of understanding among all nations & peoples of different
languages, cultures and faiths
• to making IUG not only a multlingual university but also a magnetic hub for
using creative arts in all its activities as a powerful way of communication with
local and international community.

Conclusions
1. Multilinguality and creative arts have become an increasing policy & and a
standard in most IUG formal activities. Examples
• Multilingual celebration of the launch of the 1st academic program for deaf
students: Arabic, Sign language & exhibitions of the pictures painted by newly
accepted deaf students.
• Multilingual conference on “Educational and Psychological Consequences of
the War Against Gaza” held by IUG Faculty of Education on 12-13 May, 2015
was opened by folkloric dance & songs by children, used Arabic and English
as well as an exhibition as some pictures below show.

Recommendations
1. Rmly should prepare virtual and online gallery of creative arts related to FL
pedagogy, resistance, psychotherapy, law and borders
2. Co-writing quality articles on the linguistic & pedagogical value of using language
and arts of resistance in FLT.
3. Co-writing quality articles on the psychological and mental value of creative arts
for disabled people.
Language is power, art is power, knowledge and technology is power

These students wanted more and more of such insightful linguistic and cultural activities that build bridges of understanding and cooperation. Some key questions my 160 first year students whom I teach oral communication raised: • Why do these famous non-Arabs and non-Muslims linguists sympathise with us as us, Palestinians? • Why did all of the non-Arab Speakers in the symposium greet us in Arabic?
