Save Event: Understanding the Middle East

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Talks, discussion and the premiere screening of 'What If?' films by Syrian-German artist Manaf Halbouni- a fictional rewriting of the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement.


Overwhelmed as we are with dramatic information, made inescapable with 24 hour digital media, we look for some understanding of the Middle East; its history, current situations and the way forward. Philosophy, Art and Food - next to disciplines relating to politics, religion and history - offer insight at different levels. This event offers an opportunity to appreciate and comprehend the Middle East and its society with a platform that brings together artists, academics, journalists and local people, including Syrian new Scots.
