Sawt El-Salam (Sound of Peace), an exhibition by the youth of Dar Al-Salam, will be on display in Bashkatib in Garden City on Saturday, 22 February.

The exhibition, includes photos, comics and drawings that the youth of Dar Al-Salam produced during a journalism workshop run by Bashkatib and Khatwa Library and that finally resulted in a newspaper with the same name of the exhibit, 'Sawt El-Salam.'

Bashkatib is an initiative aiming to empower youth to create local newspapers and create networks between them, while Khatwa is a library in Dar Al-Salam.

Khatwa was established as part of the El-Karamah Libraries Project, a network of local libraries launched by the Arab Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) in Dar El-Salam, Torah, Zagazig, Boulaq and Khanka.

The exhibition opens Saturday, 22 February, at 7pm at Bashkatib
