The bi-lingual Tarikhi journal presents stories from various oral history collections produced by Sharq.Org and other organisations, as well as contributions from researchers, writers and cultural actors about and related to oral histories and storytelling in the Arab world.
MULTI-DISCIPLINARY LAUNCH EVENT
BEIT BEIRUT, NOVEMBER 2018
The journal was launched at a multi-disciplinary event held in Beirut in November 2018. The event included an exhibition of powerful photographs taken by photojournalist George Azar that depict the stories of victims and survivors of the Lebanese civil war and the Palestinian Intifada. An interview with Azar is featured in the inaugural issue of the journal.
Also showcased at the launch event were works produced by Beirut-based artists as they reflected on quotes and stories from oral history collections produced by Sharq.Org; a staged reading of the play “I Am Not A Vase”; and a discussion with professional storytellers.
