ART WORKSHOP FOR ADULTS
A Suitcase of Creativity
Thursday, 30th August 2018 | 19:00 - 21:00
“Imagine that this blank paper is your suitcase, and all of a sudden you need to leave your home, and you have to take only your most important and precious things in this suitcase”.
Artist Diala Brisly invites you to join her in a group art workshop to explore themes of memory, home, human attachment and relationships.
This two hour art session is a chance to let your creativity go wild and explore the potential of artistic expression using versatile art mediums.
This event is organized as part of Tints of Resilience public programme.
Diala Brisly was born in Syria. She began as a cartoonist at the Syrian-based Spacetoon channel in 2001 and soon became a layout artist for a variety of cartoon TV shows. Her skills include layout design, animation, concept art, painting, character design, and illustration.
At the onset of the Syrian conflict in 2011, Diala participated artistically in social campaigns and projects focused on social justice, freedom, and human rights. In 2014, she started painting murals and conducting art workshops in refugee centres to support access to education for children refugees.
When not painting you can find Diala dancing. “I dance knowing that everyone is watching yet I feel free in all aspects”.
