Stories in Art from Iraqi Kurdistan

Monday, May 23, 2016 12:00 am - Saturday, August 13, 2016 12:00 am EDT

Stories in Art from Iraqi Kurdistan open from May 23 to August 13, 2016
This exhibit explores story-telling through art by people now living in Iraqi Kurdistan as a result of displacement. Iraqi Kurdistan (northern Iraq) hosts a diverse group of people brought together in a very small geographical area. This region is home to the Iraqi Kurds, Syrian Kurds, Yazidis, Assyrian Christians, and Iraqi Arabs who have offered their stories in this exhibit.

Deepen your awareness of the conflicts in Syria and Iraq and strengthen your understanding of the experiences of the refugees we are in the midst of welcoming.

Exhibit initiated by the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery and brought together by Kathy Moorhead Thiessen of Christian Peacemaker Teams Iraqi Kurdistan.

Special thanks to the many individual artists who made this unique project possible.
