In an evening dedicated to celebrating cultural heritage in the region, Suad Amiry spoke about the cities of Jerusalem, Damascus, and Jaffa as sources of inspiration for her work in architecture and as an author. The event was organised in honour of Widad Kawar and her lifelong work preserving and documenting traditional costumes from Palestine, Jordan, Syria, and other Arab countries. Suad Amiry is an award-winning writer and architect. Her recent title, "Mother of Strangers”, is based on the true story of two Jaffa teenagers between 1947 and 1951. Thank you to Mr. Rudain and Mrs. Taima Kawar for making the evening possible.
