"Revolutions of the Present" seeks to underscore the processes that link Civic Imagination and Struggle.
Free entrance
Conversations: Revolution of the Present seeks to underscore the vitality of the processes that link Civic Imagination and Struggle. As the collapse of many regimes in the Arab world exposed urgent civic and political demands, the current events of change, transformation and renewal move way beyond the frontier of technocratic "reform". Where popular disenchantment cannot be confined within a specific contemporary practice, new horizons of the future need to be and are already constructed and imagined. Thinkers, writers and artists engage in a series of conversations offering a philosophical insight that will provide an important contextual orientation of the Meeting Points 6 project.

The retrospective of the Syrian filmmaker, Omar Amiralay, presents a journey of an artist imagining and documenting alternative civic for the last 40 years. Amiralay’s body of work covers crucial cultural, political and social issues that are considered essential chapter on the modern history of Syria.
