As part of Journeys Festival International, Manchester Museum hosted our exhibition 'Silenced Voices: Syrian Women in Assad's Prisons' on 7 October. We held this exhibition in collaboration with Amnesty International's Manchester group and used it as a platform to educate people about the plight facing Syrian women in Assad regime prisons.
We held our monthly seminar on Sunday 01 Oct 2017 in which we discussed the open question: Are we still Syrians?
The open-platform discussion took place in our multi-facility room. No speakers were present and the floor was open to everyone to express their opinions.
Questions asked included:
- What do I mean when I say I am Syrian?
