We Were There: Conflict Café – conversations about Syria

11:00 - 16:00

 Facebook event page
Imperial War Museum London
Lambeth Road, SE1 6 London, United Kingdom
What do you want to know about Syria? What is daily life like? Why and when do you make the decision to leave? How does it feel to be a foreign journalist or an aid worker?

You read about Syria in newspapers, on social media and online. You hear about the conflict on the radio, on television, and in podcasts. This is a unique opportunity to join citizens and journalists who have experienced the Syria conflict on the ground for a conversation; to hear their personal stories and to ask questions.

To launch Syria: A Conflict Explored at IWM London, a range of people, some of whom have fled Syria and others who have worked there will share their stories of life in the country before and during the conflict in our pop-up Conflict Café.

Syrian drinks and delicacies will be provided by Imad’s Syrian Kitchen, a restaurant set-up by chef and former refugee Imad Alarnab. Discussion groups will be encouraged not only to listen, but to ask questions in the hope of gaining a more personal understanding of the realities of a seemingly distant crisis.
