As the Syria in Transit exhibition opens its doors in London, we feature British producer Jon Davis and Turkish photographer Kemal Vural Tarlan. The exhibition by the two TANDEM participants reveals through photography, sound and video, the hope and desperation of the lives lived in transit, capturing the stories of Syrians remaining on the edge of war in Turkey and those attempting the dangerous journey across Europe to the UK.  


Open Call for independent cultural and civil society organisations: the new TANDEM programme “Dialogue for Change” is based on our belief that cross-border collaboration supports not only dialogue, but also allows for the development of new forms of civic engagement. We are looking for change agents from Ukraine and the 28 EU member states interested in strengthening their capacities in community development and conflict resolution through the arts. The deadline for application is 15 September 2014.
