Writing workshop in Hasan Belal exhibition in Sierre
I feel longing is a documentary project realised by Syrian photographer Hasan Belal during his residency in Sierre as part of the SMArt program. It presents parts of lives of a group of migrants in the region. Focusing on the feeling of longing felt by these people from Ukraine, Syria and Afghanistan – with whom the artist himself can identify -, the exhibition aims to raise awareness, through the photographic medium, of the feelings of these immigrants in Switzerland.
It is possible to discover this exhibition at the Bibliothèque-Médiathèque of Sierre from January 20 to February 25, 2023. In this context, a writing workshop will take place on Saturday 25 February : this morning workshop proposes to explore the theme of migration and to indulge in some writing exercises, accompanied by Maurane Formaz and Chester Civelli, Valaisan writers.
