Community Reconciliation in Post-War Mosul's Old Town

Saturday 26 March - Sunday 19 June
University of Nottingham Museum

Museum

Free Admission
Open Thursday-Sunday 12noon-4pm

Closed Monday-Wednesday

The video shows how the local community in Mosul’s Old Town use their own memories and understanding of their heritage to reconstruct their historic town, using the community interactions and cultural traditions as motivators for a self-funded reconstruction process.

Produced as part of a video competition hosted by WHIPIC (the International Centre for the Interpretation and presentation of World Heritage sites under the auspices of UNESCO), as an illustration of analysis from a PhD project entitled “The (Re)inscription of Memory: The Informal Practices, Spatial Memory and Local Narratives in the Post-War Recovery of Mosul's Old Town”.
