On Sunday 3 November 2019 we held a fascinating & highly informative discussion on destruction and reconstruction in the Syrian context at our centre. The event explored the multi-dimensional nature of Syria’s built environment from a community perspective and attempted to re-frame or re-construct the urban sphere as a cultural phenomenon.
On Sunday 3 November 2019, the Centre for International Women Artists (CIWA) hosted the workshop entitled: “In your Own Image: Play with Clay” as part of Celebrating Syria Festival 2019. People were truly entertained as they get their hand dirty and joined experts to make a 3D self-portrait and other sculptures from clay.
A truly unique evening and the perfect opening to our Celebrating Syria Festival 2019 took place at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on Saturday 2 November 2019. Fawaz Baker Ensemble took us to a special place as they performed Arabic, Syriac, Armenian Turkish and Kurdish tunes that have been passed from one generation to the next.
