Hidden Histories – “Somali storytelling: our people, home and landscape”

March 29 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Since 1991 Somalia has suffered a civil war that has played out a brutal history. Words that come to mind are humanitarian crisis, Islamist militants, piracy and terrorism. Removing this perception, we culturally understand Somali people as oral storytellers for centuries with a rich history reflected through a love for poetry and short stories.

We dedicate this Hidden Histories to the people of Somalia, to discover more about the cultural landscape and to understand how community projects by today’s young artists are shaping our perception of Somali people in a positive light. Please join us with what will be a fascinating panelist, discussing artifacts, migration, health, digital archives, architecture, photography, International relations and a celebration of the Somali diaspora.
