Mosul tells festival on tour in Iraq

More than eight different ethnic and religious groups coexist in the city of Mosul. Successive wars and ongoing conflicts affect social cohesion in the city. Over the last two decades, social and cultural connections have been severely damaged, especially after the ISIS occupation of the city. Our Mosul Tells project is all about fostering social cohesion through oral history and art and to help increase the visibility of the city’s cultural diversity. As we are approaching the final months of this two-year project, our puppet theatre and exhibition are on tour in cities around Iraq. Here’s a media coverage of our festival in Erbil:

The project has produced animations showing old folk tales and myths. Our puppet theatre show is also available online to watch:
