Art in Exile
Art in Exile
Voices from Yarmouk
by Natasha Hamarneh Hall


Type Price Quantity
Paperback $16.00
   
 
The story of Syria’s largest unofficial refugee camp. How it was born and how a dissident arts scene transformed the political dialogue and provided catharsis to those facing persecution and exile. This book traces the story of the camp from its beginnings, founded by Palestinians fleeing Israeli violence. The book explores Yarmouk's growth as a vibrant suburb of Damascus, home to 160,000 Palestinians and over 650,000 Syrians. 

As cement buildings rose and bustling marketplaces expanded, Yarmouk residents continued to be restrained by dangerous political realities.  In this vulnerable space, artists, writers, playwrights, musicians, and filmmakers flourished. Some took risks and bravely spoke out through their work.  During the Syrian Civil War, they witnessed and suffered through the decimation of the mukhayyam (camp).  Art in Exile tells the story of Yarmouk through their eyes.

Natasha Hamarneh Hall is originally from Jordan and has lived and worked on education and protection issues in Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Egypt.  She was living in Damascus just prior to the revolution.  For the past 5 years she has traveled around the world to interview refugees from over 15 countries.   She trains NGOs, INGOs, and government officials about the conflicts in Syria and Iraq and particularly brings attention to the situation in Yarmouk Camp and for Palestinians from Syria in general.    In Jordan, she initiated a project called Photos to Develop where she taught children (especially girls) leading semi-nomadic lives in the Badia how to use cameras and used their pictures to raise awareness about issues they face in their communities.  In 2014, Natasha founded Art in Exile, which promotes artists, filmmakers, actors, and musicians and raises awareness on crises in the Middle East through artistic expression.  She remains an advocate for civilians in conflict.

Natasha Hamarneh Hall is the program manager of Center for Civilians in Conflict for the Middle East & North Africa.
