Conflict Café: Conversations about Syria at Imperial War Museum North (IWM North), Manchester 5 May 2018 Entrance is free

What do you want to know about Syria? What is daily life like? Why and when do you make the decision to leave? How does it feel to be a foreign journalist or an aid worker?

You read about Syria in newspapers, on social media and online. You hear about the conflict on the radio, on television, and in podcasts. This is a unique opportunity to join citizens and journalists who have experienced the Syria conflict on the ground for a conversation; to hear their personal stories and to ask questions.

This event is part of IWM North’s ongoing Conflict Café series which offers a unique opportunity to meet experts and eyewitnesses in an informal setting to discuss the human impact of conflict and hear their personal stories.

Part of Syria: A Conflict Explored.
