Deveron Projects

The Town Is The Venue
What is a Shadow Curator? What is a Shadow Curator?

What If? at the Goethe Institut

Thu 27 July, Goethe Institut, Glasgow

Screening and Talk with Manaf Halbouni

See a screening of What If?Manaf’s play created with resettled Syrian refugees and Huntly residents, showing a meeting between two representatives planning the split, followed by an Artist Talk. 

The Sykes-Picot Agreement, 1916, involved the drawing of borderlines in the Middle East by French and British diplomats. Consequences of the deal are felt heavily a century later, but what if there was a different history? Manaf Halbouni is working with Deveron Projects in Huntly to create an alternative timeline, fictionalising a world where the Ottoman Empire and United States of Arabia split Europe instead.

Hosted by the Goethe Institut, see their website for more details.
