Halabja: In the Golden Days

Part of the Journeys Festival International, 2020

Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan is known mainly because of the terrible chemical weapons attack in 1988. Gulan and our associates have conducted interviews with people from Halabja to create a series of articles on the city’s art, theatre, music and sports. Together with essays written by experts on Halabja’s history, poetry and costumes, these articles were published in the magazine Halabja: In the Golden Days as part of the Journeys Festival International 2020.
