How Art is Helping Syria’s Youngest Generation

It’s been more than 10 years since protests in Syria descended into a deadly conflict. This crisis has killed hundreds of thousands, and forced half the country’s population to flee their homes, including millions of children. An entire generation of children and young adults have had to face deep and persistent trauma, affecting their mental health, physical development and, of course, their futures.

Creating art is a proven and powerful way for people of all ages to process traumatic experiences, and ultimately move past them. This conversation, in partnership with Save the Children, will bring together an expert on providing children psychosocial support through art, a filmmaker whose documentary—The Story Won’t Die—follows seven Syrian artists who were forced to flee their homes, and one of the artists featured in that film. They will discuss how the young people caught up in this crisis are using art to share their stories, and how it is being used to support children’s wellbeing, learning, and development.
