FALAK* | Echoes of Syrian Voices

In the framework of the “5th Brussels conference – Supporting the future of Syria and the region” hosted by the EU and co-chaired by the UN, Lagrange Points presents: 

With the scattering of Syrians around the world, the relationships with their cities, whether they left or decided to stay, remain fundamental and essential. Throughout the years these relationships evolved to different levels of pain and hope, between longing and loss, anger and persistence. Despite this gloomy context, to say the least, many Syrians continue to maintain and deepen their cultural ties in their journeys of hope for a better future.

Lagrange Points is tapping into these cultural ties by set up a virtual campaign with three main pillars: 

musical dialogues, Syrian cuisine storytelling , art exhibition.

Kito Sino is active in various disciplines: drawing, painting, mosaic, sgraffito, stained glass, installations, metalwork, etc.Kito has lived everywhere and nowhere... He was always on the road. Since 2000 he has been living and working in Brussels, where being on the road has materialized into a train ticket. The banal train ticket became a medium for him, a mirror to his existence, his emotions, his experiences.
