Afghanistan: The Beautiful Land of Endless Suffering
Kite Runner in Kurtuluş
Presentation by Shahzad Mudasir and Somaia Valizadeh
The Palimpsest Festival was hosting the Kite Runner Project at the Greek School in Kurtuluş on September 7th.
Kite Runner is being developed as a hub with support/counseling and workshop opportunities, social events and network building activities for Afghans with journalistic/media background mostly in Turkey. Afghans aspiring to become journalists or media workers can also attend selected activities, and some activities are open to all.
Somaia Valizadeh and Shahzad Mudasir were introducing Afghan Culture in exile in the frame of the Mahalla Festival with lectures, screenings and talks.
Kite Runner is supported by the International Media Support.
The title, Palimpsest, originally denotes a piece of writing material on which the original writing has been erased to make room for later writing.
However, traces of the overwritten texts remain.
This paleographic phenomenon will inspire the artists of the Mahalla Festival 2022. They will be concerned with the use of resources in a
comprehensive way: in terms of ecological, economic, political, social and communal memory culture.
The Palimpsest Festival is supported by
