Future Aleppo



As part of ‘Celebrating Syria' Festival 2018, and in partnership with Journeys Festival International and Fun Palaces, Longsight Library hosted "Future Aleppo" workshop on the 6th of October.


This child-oriented activity told the story of Mohammed Kteish, who saw the destruction of his beloved Aleppo and resolved that he would rebuild the city – reconstructing the fallen landmarks first as paper models and then in virtual reality.

Children were invited to build our own city of Manchester from paper models and create a virtual reality version of it and also experience the virtual reality through which they could travel inside and experience the city of Aleppo as Mohammed remembered it.

Rethink Rebuild Society (RR) is a Manchester-based charity that works towards improving the lives of refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants in the UK, in particular but not exclusively Syrians, helping them become positively established within British society.
