“Homs in the Heart” Children Workshop

On March 11, 2017, the workshop “Homs in the Heart” was held in the town of Esenyurt, one of the most populated districts of Istanbul, highly populated with people who fled Syria after the war.

The city of Homs, urban life habits and traditions were introduced and several images from the city were displayed during the workshop. Together with children, multiple activities including drawing and storytelling were performed, and many games were played.

One strong aspect of the workshop was its ability to reach Syrian children who are able to attend school as well as those who have to work to support their families therefore could not attend school.
