The Freedom Across Borders conference is an opportunity for a wide range of human rights activists in the UK and Syrian human rights activists to meet and learn about each other’s work, and to explore opportunities for solidarity.
We will be looking at how we can come together to protect all our freedoms. We aim to learn from each other, to widen our horizons, and to make connections for long term mutual support and action.
Qisetna will be sharing their incredible work in preserving Syrian memory and oral history at this Freedom Across Borders conference in London.
The day has three strands of discussions:
• Refugees Welcome?
• Survivor Strategies
Please choose the option that most interests you. If you can’t choose one, pick the flexible option.
Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or special assistance needs before 30/6/2019.
