Lara AlMalakeh · November, 2018

I hold a MA in Comparative Cultural Analysis, a Post Graduate certificate in Translation and a Bachelor in Fine Arts. I haven't lived in my home country for over a decade, and now I'm not even sure where home is. The flames that have been eating up the Middle East forced me out of the comfort of ignorance and indifference into the realms of involvement and activism; for which citizen media has been the tool.
I enjoy writing, and to me translation is a form of it. I am interested in documentaries as ways of cultural manifestation, especially those coming from the conflict in Syria. In addition certain topics has become a pressing priority, such as digital rights, combating surveillance and ensuring technology is an empowering tool rather than an exclusionary space.
