See this emotionally stirring selection of works by a group of Syrian artists, arranged by Celebrating Syria: A Festival of Arts and Culture. The exhibition depicts the uprising of the Syrian people against Bashar al-Assad’s regime and ISIS. Experience the ways in which the artists have used their creativity and imagination to portray the birth of the revolution, its progression and its fate. The exhibition is free for all to attend.
“That is the Syrian cause. Between two oppressors, al-Assad and Daesh, there are beautiful young Syrians who dream of change and a brighter future, just like all young people around the world. They expressed their wishes in peaceful ways and were sure that they could change the world with their strong will and hard work. With unprecedented brutality and in defiance of the “free world”, they and the future they dreamed of were brutally quashed. The revolution thus entered a dark tunnel and became a grinding war with inescapable consequences”.
