Visual Art Workshop: Visions For Syria,  Weds 13th May, 6:45pm+ The Anatomy Museum at Kings College London, Strand. More details will follow.

This informal roundtable invites individuals of Syrian background across London who are in someway affected by the crisis- for example:  through personal impact migration, displacement, or separation from family connections having been based in the UK for many years, or linked by faith connection, nationality etc This is an exchange to share perspectives and generate support amongst the community as well as raise awareness of the issues on the ground with the wider public.

This project- Reverberations of Conflict:  Syrian Voices in London sees my inviting collaboration with professors at The Institute of Middle Eastern Studies and the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King’s College London. It is commissioned by King’s College London and  3FF.
