– Introduction by Fadlabi

– Sulafa Hijazi – Syrian visual artist and director
Through her work in visual art and animation Sulafa Hijazi has created links, and uncovered existing ones, between seemingly different and unrelated topics – from identity to exile, passing through social media and the fine lines between the use and abuse of image. Among many other things, Sulafa will present her work and reflections on questions relating to the social media popular art movement, which not only allowed Syrian artists to circumvent censorship but also made their artwork accessible to a wider sector of the society; and how this artwork moved again from social media to art galleries.

– Golan Haji – Syrian poet and translator will perform a Syrian Reading of Homer’s Oddyssey: Syrians, in this tragic chaos, often listen to their own story invented by non-Syrians or reinvented for non-Syrians. What if the Odyssey was narrated by a Syrian poet from Idleb?

There will be time for the audience to ask questions and engage in a conversation with the artists! The conversations will be moderated by Fadlabi.

In collaboration with Syrian Peace Action Center (SPACE) and Caravane Culturelle Syrienne
