What Is Meet The Syrians?
MEET THE SYRIANS is a one-week celebration event that gathers Syrian artists from all over the world to celebrate art for freedom. It allows us to showcase our work and connect with other communities as artists, freedom seekers and fellow humans!
MEET THE SYRIANS will hold an art exhibition, film screenings, theatrical and musical performances This event will take a place in the cities that welcome our concept. It will be a diverse exhibit that will reach a wide audience interested in art and/or freedom. (we are connected with major cities like Amsterdam, Valencia and Berlin, and with different countries like Canada)
It will be an annual event that will attract more artists every year. We aim to work with different nationalities in the future.
Who Are We?
We are visual artists, musicians and performers, photographers and filmmakers. Some of us are professional artists that still work in the creative industry, but many of us lost our jobs because of the brutal war in Syria. Some of us are still beginners that are working very hard to find our paths in the creative industry. Some of us live in Syria, some are refugees and some are expatriates. Some of us are old and some are young! We are women and men with different backgrounds and beliefs, who are gathered under the slogan of celebrating art for freedom
Each one of the coloured boxes represents a category of art participated in MEET THE SYRIANS
If you click on one of those boxes you will be able to see every artist in our group, see their faces, what they have to say, and some samples of their work
In a world where there is no black or white and everything is grey... we strive to illuminate the grey and celebrate the truth. The truth is our guardian of colour that helps us to reach freedom of mind and soul. In the humanitarian crisis that this world is living in we feel that it is our duty to reconnect humans with each other once again and show the best of us as citizens, humans and artists. There is no better language than the language of art!!
In light of the many changes that we ''as Syrian citizens & international communities'' are going through, MEET THE SYRIANS will take us by the hand to live and work together in peace and understanding.
It will build new social and professional networks between the Syrians and other communities, which will be a wonderful foundation for both social integration and future financial independence. It will open doors to many new professional connections and create new job opportunities. Our goal is to help building a productive and creative society.
