The message was very sharp, we are still alive, and Aleppo after 4 years of war still has active civil society we need to protect from the world politicians who are trying to hide this side of the war, under big names and advertising.
Thanks to all the photographers who help us to focused on the problems and try with the festival to protect as much as we can the civil life of our city.
Its very strong messages to all: when we do Art, we build peace"
