قصصهم الشخصية، بأصواتهم

بعد بضع أسابيع من ورشات العمل وأيام من التسجيل، بإمكاننا أن نقول أن التجربة حتى الآن منشطة ومحيّرة في آنٍ معاً. التّفاعلات اليومية، مشاركة القصص، الثّقة، الإبتسامات والدموع... كل هذا قد جعلنا متأكدين من قيمة المشروع الذي يخلق المساحة للإستماع  والمشاركة بتلك القصص. العنوان الذي إخترناه بشكل عفوي "والعالم يسمع" هو الشعار للمساحة التي خلقناها.… Continue reading قصصهم الشخصية، بأصواتهم
