Four years after the violence erupted in Syria, millions of lives hang in the balance, lacking access to the most basic necessities needed for survival.
Global Week For Syria is a movement for peace led by hundreds of musicians, artists, creatives, and intellectuals standing for peace and making a difference in the present and future of Syria.
Through music, art, and culture, Global Week For Syria brings to life the possibility that Syria would once again take its place as a beacon of rich culture, deep history, and unwavering hope for human compassion and understanding.
