Presented as part of Tellit: The UK's First Ever Festival of True-Life Storytelling

A night of art from music to poetry and storytelling to present Syrian voices in the UK

Hikayetna is a new art project to tell the stories of Syrians from all over the world. Vivid, moving and first hand stories will be heard.

Through this project we hope to spread Syrians’ thoughts, words, and feelings, especially Syrians living in refugee camps. We aim to make their voice heard by different audiences around the world, who would have never had the chance to hear those stories otherwise.
