Syrian Voices: Individual perspectives on the Syrian diaspora
Syrian Voices is an oral history project that illuminates the struggles and triumphs of refugees from Syria who have resettled in the U.K. The aim is to create a lasting digital archive of film and zoom-recorded interviews using community and participatory history frames, representing perspectives which are often over-looked in the archival record and integrating aspects of emotion and affect.

This event will begin with a short film on one of the participants in the project, Muradi Bakir, followed by a brief discussion of the project by Mehreen Saigol and Angela Flynn and a round-table discussion and Q&A session with Muradi Bakir, Elisabeth Bolorinos and Meryem Kalayci.
