Qisetna preserves the cultural and oral heritage of Syria, one story at a time
We are dedicated to building an active, supportive community across the world, helping to connect Syrians living in Europe and beyond, with others who have also left their home country.
We run free events, storytelling workshops and art exhibitions to encourage people to come together, share their precious memories of Syria and reclaim their cultural identity and heritage.
