AWAN Festival 2023 Talk: Sard

4 March '23 at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Join speakers Sarah Giaziri, Najla Elageli and Sanaa El Mansouri in an oral history project that aims to promote reconciliation in Libya.

Sard (meaning ‘narrative’ in Arabic) is a project that seeks to collect and preserve the experiences of individuals who have lived through periods of political and cultural significance in the country’s recent past. Through recording, compiling and archiving people’s personal recollections, Sard seeks to build trust and facilitate dialogue between different communities and contribute to a more inclusive and democratic society.

Sana Elmansouri is a Libyan journalist and television presenter. She was the first Libyan to present television programmes in tamazight, a native language of North Africa. Ms Elmansouri is best known for Abrid N Tagrawla (The Road of the Revolution) which was broadcast on Libya Al Ahrar in 2011 during the Libyan Revolution.

Najlaa El-Ageli, an architect (AA Dip) with over twenty years of experience in the profession, founded Noon Arts Projects in 2012.

Sarah Giaziri is a human rights, press freedom and journalist safety campaigner.
