Turquoise Mountain is working with children and families to reconnect them with their heritage

With so many children and families displaced by conflict, our heritage outreach team offer a connection to Levantine cultural heritage through a range of online and classroom-based teaching sessions. We began working with Syrian families in Azraq and Zatari refugee camps using hands-on activities to learn about traditions such as Mosaic, Islamic Geometric Patterns, Storytelling, Traditional

Songs, Folklore Dance, and much more. We are now teaching children and families through our in-house workshops and in many other areas around the Levant region. The curriculum was built around the model of a typical Arabic house, with the project culminating in its decoration and construction using the skills developed through the course.
