Crafting civil society in Ghouta

Photoblog: Crafting civil society in Ghouta

 'To the untrained eye, it may not seem like "resistance" of the traditional variety one expects to see in Syria.
 But for people in Eastern Ghouta, a town just outside Damascus, the chance to demonstrate the ineffectiveness of Assad's bombs is just that.

 The display at the opening of the Eve Centre for Arts is not just of arts and crafts made from recycled bits and bobs and damaged furniture, but a display of resilience, of perseverance.

 It is a demonstration that, despite being under siege by Assad's troops since 2013, life here goes on.'
