Introduction to Halabja: In the Golden Days

As part of Journeys Festival International in 2020, UK charity Gulan published a magazine about Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan, a city known for the terrible chemical weapons attack in 1988. The publication - which you can find below - featured interviews and essays about the culture of Halabja and work by artists from the region.

This year, Gulan is showing the exhibition Halabja: In the Golden Days - based on this material - at Portsmouth Cathedral from 14 October to 3 November to celebrate the rich history and culture of Halabja. The exhibition and related events will create a colourful celebration of Kurdish culture - aiming to reinforce a sense of cultural identity among the Kurdish diaspora in Portsmouth and increase awareness in the wider public.
