Women and Memory Forum

“Doing Well, Don’t Worry.” exhibition in Beirut

in collaboration with Women and Memory Forum  and  Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship (AUB), The Knowledge Workshop in Lebanon the exhibition “Doing Well, Don’t Worry.”: Short Tales of Women’s Work and Mobility on Friday the 8th of December 2017. 

This exhibition introduces glimpses into the lives of several women – women, who have worked and moved as doctors, maids, actresses, students, accountants, filmmakers, embroiderers, teachers, tour guides, artists, and as mothers, daughters, mentors and friends. They live in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Denmark, yet their lives invite us to travel across many more spaces, peoples, and times, and inspire us to rethink familiar meanings and assumptions about women, mobility and work.
This exhibition is the result of collaboration between the Women and Memory Forum (EG), Women’s Museum in Denmark (DK), Danish-Egyptian Dialogue Institute (EG/DK), Anthropology Unit and the Cynthia Nelson Institute from the American University in Cairo (EG), the Tiraz Centre (JO) and the Knowledge Workshop (LE). It could, however, not have been done without the help from students and young professionals in the fields of social sciences, architecture, museums and graphic design who lent their time and passion to the project.

The exhibition continues to receive visitors until the 18th of December 2017 at Exode Gallery, Accaoui Street, Achrafieh in Beirut.
