Event description
The first cup is strong like life, the second is sweet like love and the third is soft like death.

About this Event

Mohamad Sulaiman is an artist, storyteller, and self-thought architect who have been living his whole life in the Western Saharan refugee camps in Algeria. With the Saharawi culture as a starting point and with the use of recycled waste, he has created a unique studio in the desert. And just as a tent could be dismantled and loaded on a camel in less than a day when it is time to return to a free and independent Western Sahara, so can his studio.

In connection with a visit to Sweden, where Mohamad takes part in a Global Bar discussion on art, resistance and creativity, we are also happy to organise a small workshop for those interested in learning more about the Saharawi culture.

Inspired by the Saharawi tea ceremony, Mohamad Sulaiman will guide us through a storytelling session/workshop in which each one of us will be able to share our stories.

The Saharawi drink tea in 3 rounds, each cup has a different taste and each taste has a different interpretation. The first cup is strong like life, the second is sweet like love and the third is soft like death.

Which one evokes your memories the most?

Come share with us! As the number of participants is limited, please sign up for the event.
