On Monday 4 November 2019 we had our first cooking workshop as part of Celebrating Syria Festival 2019. At this hands-on workshop, attendees learnt how to make a platter of mixed mezze so they can impress their guest. It was homely, calm & relaxed atmosphere and participants truly enjoyed this fantastic experience.
This event is part of the third annual Celebrating Syria Festival that took place between 2 and 9 November 2019 and included 20 activities in different venues across Manchester. Considered one of the biggest if not the biggest of its kind in Europe, Celebrating Syria Festival aims to reflect the richness and diversity of Syrian heritage and culture.
It is the Syrians narrative about Syria! Where we as Syrians wish to change the narrative from that depicted in the media as one characterised by violence, pain and suffering, into one where Syria is seen as a country that, throughout history, has contributed immeasurably to human civilisation and world culture.
