Capturing Our Stories: An Exhibition of Syrian Children's Photography
Earlier this month, a group of young Syrian children participated in a series of photography workshops, with the goal of creating story-telling space to empower the kids to take hold over the narratives that define them.

We invite you to join us for the opening of their photo exhibition on August 31 at the Interurban Gallery. learn more →
