who we are...
Artwork by Faten Al Qerem
enabling Syrian artists to share their work with the world to bring about awareness, compassion & understanding
we are one family...
We are a group of artists from Syria and Canada working together to raise awareness of the current situation in Syria, accentuate our similarities as people, and share our stories with the world. In the process we hope to encourage understanding and compassion. We will feature Syrian and Middle Eastern visual artists, media artists, and performance artists and writers.

We use pay pal for ease of on line payments. You will get 100% of the proceeds of the sale of your work. Our costs are donated for you. You will only be required to ensure shipping costs are coveredfor the items sold. We have Arabic and Persian translators available if you require one.
Our group came together in late fall 2015, at a time when the severity of the Syrian refugee crisis was unmistakably apparent to the world. The misunderstandings between the middle east and the western world seem insurmountable at times. After a series of conversations and sharing, we realized that one of the greatest boundaries between us was fear and uncertainty based on our lack of understanding of each other as people. We all want the same things…peace, safety, love, security and hope. Our hope is that we may illustrate our similarities through our own art, and that of other artists.
Join us on our journey.
