A multimedia art exhibition that explores how arts can support dialogue, resilience and peace in the wake of the ongoing media crisis.
The exhibition follows the inspiring stories of a number of displaced Syrian artists - including theatre directors, actors, photographers, animators and film makers - involved in an art project run by International Alert, the cultural organisation Ettijahat Independant Culture in Lebanon and the British Council. It is curated by Ying-Hsuan Tai of Goldsmiths University of London.
From painting and filmmaking, to puppetry and choral signing, art has given displaced Syrians a chance to be joyful in a time of distruction, to create a sense of community in a foreign land and to envisage a collective future without violence.
The exhibition will feature a diverse range of art forms created as part of the project and the fascinating stories of the people involved in 'creating Syria'.
