Journalist Leonore Schick reported to Associated Press (AP) about the 3rd annual Celebrating Syria Festival which was held in various locations across Manchester between 2 and 9 November 2019. Leonore reported on the main events that happened in the first two days of the festival. Thank you Leonore and AP for covering part of the festival
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.
