Be the creator of our next canopy!

Sew and make and create for Tahlila – lullabies under the stars

كن شريكا بانشاء مظلتنا القادمة!

ساعدنا بخياطة وصنع مساحة لمشاركة التهويدات والقصص تحت النجوم

 

Do you have a lullaby to share, a story you tell before bedtime, or a drawing that you scribbled in your dreams?

Join us to create, sew, sing, and share stories for the creation of Tahlila: Lullabies under the stars.

You will get to experience a taste of Tahlila by hearing songs and stories, and by adding your own creativity by sewing.

If you can, bring some squares of fabric – we will sew these into the canopy to create a shared space that will host our community’s stories and lullabies (sewing materials will also be provided).

This is an open, fun event for all ages and families.

You are welcome to join in or just listen, watch and enjoy – this workshop is a lead up to the full event that will be presented in 2022, you will be helping us this year in creating the canopy under which we will dream.

 

هل لديك تهويدة او تهليلة ما قبل النوم و تود مشاركتها ، أو قصة ترويها قبل النوم ، أو رسومات حلمتها في أحلامك؟

 انضم إلينا لإنشاء وخياطة وغناء ومشاركة القصص من أجل المساعدة في إنشاء العرض المسرحي تهليلة: تهويدات تحت النجوم.

سوف تحصل على تجربة مميزة من خلال سماع الأغاني والقصص ، وإضافة لمساتك عن طريق الابداع في الخياطة والرسومات

إذا استطعت ، أحضر بعض المربعات من القماش – سنقوم بخياطتها في المظلة لإنشاء مساحة مشتركة تستضيف قصص مجتمعنا وتهويداته.

(سيتم توفير مواد الخياطة أيضًا).

هذا حدث ممتع لجميع الأعمار والعائلات.

مرحبًا بك لمشاركة اعمالك معنا أو مجرد الاستماع والاستمتاع –

Aseel Tayah

Aseel Tayah is an award-winning artist, director, producer and activist from Palestine who has been living and working in Melbourne since 2016.

Since 2018 she created her signature project Bukjeh, a powerful and affirming storytelling performance for refugee and asylum seeking artists, performed inside a redesigned disaster relief tent. Since then Bukjeh has gone on to be performed dozens of times across Victoria to thousands of deeply moved audience.

Aseel’s work is an inspiring mix of activism, grassroots culture, and a passionate belief in the power of eliciting the personal stories of “ordinary” people in the community. She works with a committed group of fellow artists to share, connect and celebrate with language and music.

In addition to her community performance work, Aseel Tayah turned a string of cancelled engagements during the 2020 lockdown into a dynamic schedule of digital panels, workshops and performances for Refugee Week, attracting more than 20 thousand viewers from across the world. Then she went on to single handedly compile and deliver one thousand children’s activity packs to families in hard lockdown in public housing towers. At the end of the year her tireless work was acknowledged with the Victorian Multicultural Commission Award of Excellence in the Arts (the inaugural award), the Women Acknowledging Women Award and a nomination for an Australian Muslim achievement Award.
