Celebrating Syria Festival
December 5, 2020 @ 8:00 am - December 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Celebrating Syria Festival aims to reframe public perception of Syria away from the conflict and misery portrayed by the media and showcase the traditions and treasures in the heart of The Levant. Sharing the art and culture of Syria with friends and neighbours in Manchester and beyond through art exhibitions, talks and panel discussions, film screenings, food and interactive workshops strengthens the diversity, vibrancy and multiculturality of Manchester as a City. Rethink Rebuild Society is proud to be hosting such a meaningful project.
This years theme is 'Alone Together' since the Covid-19 Pandemic means that Celebrating Syria 2020 will be entirely virtual. We recognise that, especially during such isolating times, it is imperative that all communities feel represented and joyful. This years events will be simultaneously enjoyed and discussed from the comfort of our own living rooms.
This years events will include a family workshop learning about Ouds with Rihab Azar, Syrian Cuisine Discussion with Antonio Tahhan, a hilarious stand-up comedy performance and many more interesting events. Crowdfunding is crucial to running such amazing and poignant events as part of Celebrating Syria. We appreciate that times are hard for everyone, so we are extremely grateful for any donation amount.
