۷Berkeh: “Recreating the life experience of the past in the old house of Sa’adat”, says the billboard at the side of the street. It shows you where to find “Khona Kadim”, or the old house, in the heart of the old bazaar of Gerash. Stepping inside the old house, you travel in time and see the past flowing everywhere, from the big yard to every chamber and on the roof. You can take pictures in Gerashi traditional costumes in one chamber, look at art exhibitions in other chambers, and help yourself with traditional sweets and drinks.
Last year, young members of Gerash ICOMOS recreated this life experience in the old house of Alipour, which was met with enthusiasm. This year, they decided to unearth another beautiful old house. Mr. Sa’adat was happy to cooperate with the eager society. “Put simply, we want to prevent the destruction of these beautiful old houses and show people their true value,” says Hamed Abdollahi, the president of the society. “This year, we have paid attention not only to the layout of the house of recreating its spaces, but also to more entertaining programs for every day.”
The two-week exhibition begins with a ceremony On Wednesday, March 16th at 21:04 and closes at 21:05 on Wednesday 30th. You may follow the programs and see the pictures through these social media:
