About SPACE

Established in May 2015, the Syrian Peace Action Center (SPACE) is a non-profit, independent association that works towards creating common and alternative spaces for Syrian and Norwegian activists, researchers, intellectuals, cultural producers and artistic voices to engage and interact. SPACE collaborates with key Norwegian actors with the hope to sustain an informed and nuanced discussion about Syria and a better understanding of the Norwegian society. Through periodic change in the focus of the events, SPACE is especially sensitive to the dynamics of the Norwegian public sphere, who functions as the main audience for its message.
