Radio Hakaya is a podcast series featuring stories of life and displacement among Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian communities in northern Lebanon.
Over the next eight weeks, ROAR will be hosting Radio Hakaya, an online radio show produced by the Brush&Brow collective. Keep your eyes peeled for new episodes to be released on our blog every Monday, or sign up to our Daily Reflections newsletter here.
Radio Hakaya is an online-radio community project started by Brush&Bow in northern Lebanon. Since September 2018 Brush&Bow has been working with communities in the region of Akkar and beyond, to produce podcasts on stories of life and displacement among the Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian communities there.
This podcast series is made of eight episodes, each including an interview reflecting the current socio-political climate faced by Syrians and their host communities, as the pressure rises for refugees to return to Syria. In this series, Radio Hakaya presents a mosaic of testimonies and experiences on the life of different communities in Lebanon. The diversity of characters in the series gives voice to the discordant and contrasting opinions present on the ground, reflecting the complexity of the overall picture and its multi-layered reality.
All recordings are taken, translated and edited with the help from members of the local community.
Interviews and Editing by Roshan De Stone & David L. Suber.
Editing and Translations by Fadi Haddad.
Illustrations by Hannah Kirmes-Daly.
