The only positive that has come out of the horrific Syrian war is a new and vibrant civil society. Under Assad’s regime there were no independent organisations or political parties. The hope for a better future is to be found in a strong civil society that can keep its government in check, and stop it from regressing to the police state it has been under Assad’s rule. What is the civil society in Syria today? Who are the teachers who keep…

Et flerkulturelt arrangement på Deichmanske hovedbibliotek sommeren 2017 Utover bøker og malerier er det et bredere kulturelement som ikke fins i et bibliotek eller et galleri. Immateriell kulturarven er like mangfoldig som verdens land er, like variert og fargerikt som tenkesett, levemåter og skikker er. Den immaterielle arven er for de fleste en kilde til stolthet for å kunne vise tilhørighet til et samfunn og et land, en felles historie og identitet.

The very same city that once represented hope is now the site of violence and despair.   The story of Aleppo needs to be told. Only by making sense of what happened to Aleppo and its people can we make sense of the lasting impact this loss for civilization will…
