The participation of the Artas Folklore Center's Debka Troupe in the Medi-Terra Festival, thanks to the Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation is covered in a 2011 book entitled Contested Mediterranean Spaces: Ethnographic Essays in Honour of Charles Tilly
By Maria Kousis, Tom Selwyn, David Clark

The authors describe the difficulty they had in tracking down the troupe,arranging for them to get the necessary visas. They describe their organizational structure and the fact that they were affiliated with the Artas Folklore Center, with no website of their own. Finally, they describe the warm reception they got in Crete and the enthusiastic response to their involving the audience in reconstruction of a Palestinian Wedding. The book includes some photos of the Artas Folklore Troupe at the event, and acknowledges the help of the Artas Folklore Troupe and the Artas Folklore Center in completing the questionnaire.
