The theme of EMPOWER 2019, ROTA’s 11th Annual Youth Conference on Personal Leadership, Service Learning and Global Citizenship, was “Youth: A Catalyst for Peace and Dialogue for Development”. This year it took place between the 14-16 of March at Hamad Bin Khalifa University at Education City. As part of the seminar panel discussion, keynote speeches, small group workshops, seminars, off-site activities, exhibition, social program and youth artistic expression that took place across the three days, Qatar Reads participated with a lecture on ‘Storytelling as a Powerful Tool in Peacemaking & Dialogue’. The lecture covered face-to-face storytelling of conflict survivors, the role of memoirs in humanizing survivors, and the use of fiction in acts of remembrance and healing.
