Suad Amiry: RIWAQ, reclaiming space in Palestine
October 23 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Today you are going to discover Suad Amiry’s work as an architect in Palestine. Mostly known as a writer, Suad Amiry is also the founder of RIWAQ, an organization engaged in mapping, preserving and restoring the Palestinian cultural heritage. Established in 1991, during two intense, dense and magmatic decades, RIWAQ became a solid cultural space where different generations of Palestinians as well as the many visitors who travel to the country can find a professional team in the fields of art, architecture and engineering ready to guide them through the architectural and artistic treasures that survived the attacks and destruction by the militarized aggressive interventions on the Palestinian land and culture.
Listening to Suad Amiry and reading RIWAQ publications on this topic reveal all the clues of the millennial Palestinians’ history and socio-economic peculiarity.
