Towards active citizenship in Syria

“Towards active citizenship in Syria” is my contribution to the collective publication ” Culture in Defiance: Continuing Traditions of Satire, Art and the Struggle for Freedom in Syria“, in the occasion of the art exhibition hosted by Prince Claus Foundation Gallery in Amsterdam, 4 June-23 Nov 2012.

I`ve analysed the “raised hands” campaign, a government backed outdoor campaign that was released in Syria last year, just few weeks after the beginning of the uprising. After more than one year people have been sharing and remixing this campaign changing its original message in unexpected ways that signal a new approach to idea of citizenship and people`s participation to public life.
