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.
Animated and directed by the Société des écrivain-e-s valaisan-ne-s section Jeunes.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25 FROM 10 AM TO 12 AM
Open to all from 16 years old. Places are limited.
