How does the Syrian revolution and the different arts intersect? How have they been influencing and nurturing each other from 2011 to today? In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the Syrian revolution, this series of events looks at how the revolution has affected contemporary Syrian creative expression and vice versa. In doing so, it focuses on presenting recent cultural approaches and modes of expression.
Each of the seven daily events starts by presenting an artistic or cultural project, followed by a panel talk with Syrian cultural producers, activists, and researchers. Additionally, on each day, a Syrian visual artist will present an artwork in a pop-up exhibition during the panel talk in the coculture space. Participating artists are Yaser Safi, Abdul Karim Majdal Al-Beik, Ahmad Ramadan, Tammam Azzam, Ali Kaaf, Hiba Al Ansari, and Mouneer Alshaarani.
All panel talks will be held in Arabic with simultaneous translation into English. Dedicated to Dr. Hassan Abbas (1955-2021)
