Exhibition: The Creative Memory of the Syrian Revolution
19 November 2018 – 25 January 2019 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9:00-17:00 (for other days/times by pre-booked visit)
Rethink Rebuild Society, Longsight, Manchester
Inspired and encouraged by the greatly positive reception that the exhibition was met with when it was shown as part of Celebrating Syria Festival, October 2018, we have decided to bring the exhibition to Rethink Rebuild Society to be experienced by a wider audience in Manchester.
The exhibition forms part of the largest digital archive of the creative work related to the Syrian Revolution (creativememory.org). After a long tour in several French cities, Rethink Rebuild Society is proud to bring the exhibition to the UK for the British audience to experience some of the most powerful art works that have been produced by Syrian artists in the context of the Syrian Revolution.
This emotionally stirring selection of works by Syrian artists depicts the uprising of the Syrian people against Bashar al-Assad’s regime and ISIS. Come along and experience the ways in which these Syrian artists-activists have used their creativity and imagination to portray the birth of the revolution, its progression and its fate.
