Living Aleppo will comprise stories, life experiences and memories of the people. In the coming months we will build Living Aleppo. Through conversations with locals in Aleppo, we will gather their stories and experiences in an artistic, spatial rendition. Each story will constitute a new area in the expo. That means that the design for the expo will not be a confined, preconceived plan; we will let it emerge organically.
Stories revealing daily life in a destroyed city. How society in a war zone searches for creative solutions to live and to survive. How students sit for their exams, even though their university is being bombed. How people get to work and shop for groceries, day after day, under the constant threat of snipers and bomb attacks.
Stories of Living Aleppo have been voiced by actor Vincent van Ommen.
