03 Nov 2014

For three months, a group of Syrian girls aged 14 to 18-years-old from Zaatari the biggest refugee camp for Syrians, which can now be counted the fourth biggest city in Jordan – participated in a media workshop to gain artistic and technical training in photography and video, with encouragement to reflect on and voice their own stories and those of their surrounding community. With cameras, microphones and pens in hand, the girls set out to document their everyday lives – how it looks, feels and sounds from the ground, at the heart of their world. One of the young artists, who has just started to learn and write, named the body of work ‘Waves of Childhood.’ All photographs and writing in the following slides were produced by the girls. The Workshop was organised by women one who advocates for the power of an educated girl to transform her life, inspire a community, and change the world. Picture: womenone.org
