Addar Cultural & Conference Center

Located in the heart of the old city of Bethlehem and the up-to-date facilities, ad-Dar Cultural and Conference Center  is a unique place for local, national and international concerts, theatre, film screenings, performances, conferences and encounters. We can host theater productions, musical concerts, presentations and other shows with our state of the art light and sound system. Among others, we have hosted Ahdaf Souief, The Jerusalem Festival, Simone Shaheen and many film screenings, presentations and workshops by local and international figures.

Our restaurant, coffeeshop and guesthouse were launched this year in faith and after employing 15 unemployed highly skilled staff under the motto "Employability through hospitality".

We offer full accommodations with Addar Performance Hall and meeting rooms, Il'iliyeh Restaurant, Al-Kuz Café and Bar and Abu Gubran Guest House.

Addar Cultural & Conference Center facilities make every effort to support local Palestinian companies in the construction of our facilities and our local families with the goods that are purchased; everything from our glassware, to our furniture (from Palestine and Finland) to our original artwork.

Through the generous support of the Foreign Ministry of Finland and in preparation for the millennium celebration in Bethlehem, this state of the art facility was created and designed by the world-renowned Finnish architect, Juha Leiviska.

The International Center of Bethlehem is a non-smoking building.
