Thursday October 19th: Rebuilding Syria’s Cities for All
A Conversation with Marwa al-Sabouni and Molly Crabapple

Festival of the Future City, Arnolfini Center for Contemporary Art 6pm – 7pm
Marwa al-Sabouni runs a private architectural studio in Homs, Syria. She advocates that architecture played a crucial role in the slow unravelling of Syrian cities’ social fabric, preparing the way for once-friendly groups to become enemies instead of neighbours. This conversation will explore the role architecture and the built environment play in whether a community crumbles or comes together, and offers insights on how Syria should be rebuilt.

Daniella Rodríguez de Siembre Tres Vidas

 

“This is a portrait of Daniella Rodríguez of Siembra Tres Vidas, a farm in Puerto Rico. I’m a Puerto Rican Jew from New York who hasn’t been back on the island since I was a little girl, but I remember my abuelo cutting sugar cane for me, and the remnants of jibaro — peasant — life, and I wanted a picture that showed a strong woman of the land, the sort of woman who always made la isla verde green.” – Molly

Made for A Growing Culture

 
For thousands of years, farmers have provided humanity with sustenance and nutrition, developing creative and progressive techniques that work with nature, not against it.
Yet our society consistently overlooks and undervalues them in favor of a food system developed and promoted by corporations, not farmers.
Today we say: Enough. We can no longer participate in a system that denigrates farmers, their communities, and their products. Instead, we rise in solidarity with those who feed the world. We stand with farmers and everyone who contributes to a global food supply. And we will stand with them until they are recognized as the leaders they are and returned to their rightful place at the helm of agriculture.
