At Battersea Art Centre every day is different. The variety of audience makes the experience rich with the unexpected. Although the same story told all the time, the different audience who hear it makes the process enjoyable, heartfelt and unique.

I wanted to get involved because I have been working in schools educating the new generation about Syria and Syrian refugees, and I thought it’s good to tell more people about my story, because some people think it’s very easy for us and we’ve just decided to come to Europe for nothing.

After a long war-torn country, a lot of stories to be told, every Syrian has his own tragedy not similar to any other fellow Syrian. Rather that the different stories and experiences, there are the different reactions feeling, expectation, a mouth to be telling, or even a tear to be shed but not at any occasion. It is also very important for me the listener who is, is he willing to understand me to imagine the horrors we had, would my voice has an echo in this world. Yes I do belive in Batersie Centre and the people who are there in a country like the UK, where people go deep in the words and think emotionally but rationally and any deep real sense leave its impact on them. Battersea Centre thank you so much for the platform you offered for Syrians to express themselves.
