CONFERENCE ON GLOBAL ENCOUNTERS IN PALESTINIAN REFUGEE CAMP- YARMOUK IN DAMASCUS, SYRIA

Gaza: Arts of Resilience and Hope in the Midst of Despair

Saturday 30th of October 2021  From 10.00 to 16.00 

Copenhagen-Denmark Venue: Rytmisk Center Vesterbrogade 107E, 1620 København

This conference has a twofold objective. Firstly, it seeks to highlight the cultural heritage of Yarmouk- a place once called the capital of the Palestinian diaspora. This will be accomplished by bringing scholars, activists, cultural figures and NGO experts together to share their work with each other and with a broader audience. The conference also aims to underscore local-global encounters and hierarchies experienced in the spacial social field of Yarmouk but that can be found in other spaces, based on the assumption that we all have shared values, thoughts and critical points that are anchored in our local practices.

This conference is funded by the Danish Institute in Damascus at the University of Copenhagen & the EUMENIA Jean Monnet Network

This conference is organized by the Syrian Cultural Institute in Denmark and Roskilde University.
