Musicians and Artists in Exile: Preserving, Creating or Eulogizing Syrian Culture?

Workshop, 13-15 October 2022, Cambridge

Organised by PhD Scholar Dunya Habash in the final year of her studies, this workshop brings an interdisciplinary and inter-professional focus to the study of Syrian culture in exile and those displaced beyond its borders, providing a pathway for interdisciplinary dialogue between forced migration studies and the study of aesthetics and cultural phenomena.

It sets out to examine how displaced Syrian musicians, artists, writers and other cultural advocates have negotiated the local, national and international refugee regime, new cultural and performance practices in host countries, and to examine their various strategies for reclaiming a creative voice despite undergoing trauma, separation and loss. The workshop will also consider how practitioners in NGOs and cultural organisations situate themselves in relation to displaced Syrian artists and audiences.

Speakers: Dawn Chatty, Jonathan Shannon, Shayna Silverstein, Yammen Jazbeh, Ammar Azzouz, Tom Western, Bassel Hariri, Mohamed Salem, Issam Kourbaj, Khaled Alsaid, Serkan Hakki.
