‘Culture, Heritage and Youth Nexus in Yemen’
Photo exhibition and traditional music performance
The ongoing conflict in Yemen has been heavily affecting the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. At the same time, the conflict exacerbates the existing socio-economic issues faced by many young Yemenis, leaving them in a state of extreme vulnerability.
The project Cash for Work: Promoting Livelihood Opportunities for Urban Youth in Yemen, funded by the European Union and implemented by UNESCO, creates income opportunities for young people by providing jobs in the cultural sector in connection with urban rehabilitation and cultural programming in four historic cities (Sana’a, Shibam, Zabid and Aden).
Within the framework of this project, UNESCO and EU are pleased to invite you to the event Culture, Heritage and Youth Nexus in Yemen. Through a photo exhibition, a virtual reality corner and traditional music performance, you will discover the Yemeni cultural heritage and youth engagement in cultural heritage rehabilitation.
Tuesday 3 March, 17:30 → 20:30
Free entrance. Registration is required.
