On the 7th of November, Rethink Rebuild Society's Manager Dr. Haytham Alhamwi delivered a lecture in the University of Manchester as part of the Development and Inequality module. Dr. Alhamwi talked about what life was like in Syria before and after 2011 and why Syrian people had to flee their country.
On Wednesday 6 November, we had the London Syrian Ensemble (the best Syrian band in the UK!) to perform some classical and some new Syrian and oriental music with a huge emotional range and depth. The London Syrian Ensemble is a collective of some of the Damascus Conservatoire’s finest musicians, now based in the UK.
On Tuesday 5 November 2019, we had the 1st screening of the award-winning film: The Day I lost My Shadow at Home Cinema in Manchester. The film highlights the story of a Syrian mother (Sana) whose dream was to find a cooking gas to prepare a meal for her son. She takes a day off from her job to search for a gas cylinder.
