River of Life. A research Project on display.
This drawings exhibition asks: In displacement settings, what shapes the life trajectories of young people from education to employment?
During the River of Life exercise, Dana Al Barqawi, a mixed media artist, supported young people to use art as an alternative way to communicate what they could not always put into words, expressing their experiences and emotions about their personal histories of education, work, and displacement.
We invited a group of young Jordanians, Palestinian and Syrian refugees, living in Amman to draw their River of Life.
This analytical participatory approach produced meaningful drawings representing their trajectories from birth onto the future and reflect the legal, social, gender, cultural, and economic realities.
Each drawing is accompanied by Stories Unfold: narratives of youth from education to employment.

A collection of short films created and filmed by young Lebanese, Syrians, and Palestinians in Lebanon. These films were created as part of a series theatre workshops in collaboration with Al Jana, the Arab Resource Centre for Popular Arts, held online under the direction of Roueida Al Ghali. With the onset of the pandemic, our initial plan to create a play had to be adapted and eight theatrical performances written by the young people and filmed in their homes were produced instead.
