GLOBAL WEEK FOR SYRIA
“Just imagine all of us united through sincerity of our intention, heart-felt compassion and loving presence come together to realize our collective dreams…we can make a change and co-creation is where it starts…”
Global Week for Syria is a multi-disciplinary call for peace, support and co-creation. As one of our partners - organizer of a concert in Vienna in 2016 Orwa Saleh said: “Joining the Global Week for Syria is being a part of the international voice that asks to stop the Syrian crises and the Syrian voice that says we are not only numbers and news but hopes, dreams and culture…”
What is Global Week for Syria?
Global Week for Syria is a worldwide humanistic initiative that aims to unite individuals, bands, orchestras, cultural institutions, spaces, and schools from around the globe to raise awareness, create platforms and stimulate co-creations between Syrians and local communities.
The program of the global initiative includes musical performances, conferences, fundraising cultural events, and workshops. These events are open to everyone. Singing, music, food and drink are encouraged and we hope the events can be positive and generous at a time when Syrians need our help more than ever.
A short history of the initiative
