Join us at the Syrian Culture Festival in Copenhagen

Join the Syrian Culture Festival this Saturday 29th of April at Blågårdsplads in Copenhagen, and experience Syrian live music, poetry, art, food, markets, entertainment for children and much more. Habibi – Syrian Street Food and Hahnemann’s Kitchen cook and sell Syrian street food. The surplus goes to Danish Muslim Aids collection for food aid in Syria.

Trine Hahnemann and Hahnemann’s Kitchen have made several events with Habibi, a voluntary food initiative under DFUNK – Danish Refugee Council Youth, and are very excited to once again join the young volunteers. Habibi consists of young volunteers with and without refugee backgrounds, who want to bring together people and break down barriers through meals.

Syrian Culture Festival
Meet the people behind Habibi and taste Syrian street food this Saturday April 29, 12–18pm when Danish Muslim Aid as part of their ‘Give Moments of Hope’ campaign invites everyone to a Syrian Culture Festival at Blågårdsplads in Copenhagen. In addition to sinking your teeth into delicious street food, you have the opportunity to experience Syrian live music, poetry, art, (more) food, markets, entertainment for children and much more. All profits go to Danish Muslim Aids ‘Give Moments of Hope’ campaign for food aid to Syria. The goal is to collect 250,000 DKK (33.000 EUR) in 40 days.

Syria’s pots
In 2015, the Danish publishing house Politikens forlag published the book Syria’s pots with recipes by Trine. The proceeds from the sale of the book went to the Danish Refugee Council. The money was earmarked for two projects: First aid for the Syrian refugees arriving in Greece and partly for the project «Young in Denmark», an intergration project for young unaccompanied refugees coming to Denmark.

It is free to attend the Syrian Culture Festival and it is suitable for children. Read more about the event here. The Syrian Culture Festival is part of the 48-hour festival Nørrebro.
