Additional information

Join us for a celebration of Afghan culture, past and present. Our featured panelists will give brief presentations sharing aspects of their work and practice—from the study of early art and heritage to contemporary literature and music. Rather than center war and crises, this program will focus on the lived experiences of Afghans who have taken refuge in this country, reminding us of the stories, people, and art of Afghanistan. A moderated discussion with the speakers will follow the presentations.
