The Story of Aleppo
At the beginning of the Syrian uprising, Aleppo symbolized dissent to Assad rule culturally, with its unique plethora of artistic, cultural and civil society initiatives. 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 have in the world.
In its third annual edition, The Question of Syria will tell the Story of Aleppo during two days of talks, panel discussions, short film screenings, and music bringing together academics, activists and artists who will talk and reflect on Aleppo.
