A Journey to Yemen

Salam For Yemen (Paris), Arabesque Events (Dublin) and the Liverpool Arab Art Festival (Liverpool) are pleased to share a moment of humanity and solidarity with the people of Yemen.

This will be an opportunity to discover Yemen, its heritage, its arts, its music and to raise awareness of the on-going humanitarian crisis. This one-day event will show that, despite its dark times, Yemen is a land of peace and tolerance. It is a country steeped in a rich history and culture that its people love to share. During this event, we will take you to Sana’a to visit an art gallery, watch a mural being painted live, and listen to live music with a group of young Yemenis. Afterwards, a panel of speakers will intervene, followed by a discussion with you. You will also be able to discover the photographic projects “Salam-the war in Exile” and “Panorama of Yemen”. For foodies, we will introduce you to Yemeni cuisine, then take you to Cairo for a performance of lute and Qanbous; the old Yemeni lute (طربي). You will also be presented with links to some award-winning documentaries on Yemen.

12:00-16:30 GMT

13:00-17:30 Paris time

03:00 PM-07:30 PM Sana’a time
