With stories from the narrow alleys of Old Damascus to the cotton fields of Deir Ezzor, Qisetna is at the frontier of Syrian arts and culture, a place where ordinary people write about their precious memories and so reclaim their cultural identity. Qisetna touches people from New York and Stockholm to Cairo and Tokyo, sharing not only Syria’s ancient oral heritage – the art of hakawati (storytelling) – but also the most recent works of its contemporary artists. Join Qisetna co-founder, Juan DelGado, accompanied by violinist, Bassel Hariri introducing stories written from around the world.

This event is part of the Finding Home festival.

Please note: this event was previously scheduled for 11AM.
