Workshop: Alia Mossallam, Telling like a river
Saturday 1 October, 2pm-5pm, First Space, Chapter
What if history was actually a story within a story within a story? In this storytelling workshop with Alia Mossalam, we’ll spend time with the various archives she shares in Rawy al-Anhar to explore how the Nubian people resisted displacement and how a story can be re-told through water.
