About the Event

Reflection Session #6: ALERT!

Special Guest: Nimo H. Farah

Tuesday, February 9, 2021

6-7:30pm Central / 7-8:30pm Eastern

Our February episode features the poem "ALERT!" by Lebanese American poet and theatre artist, Andrea Assaf, and discussion of this month's themes of surveillance and drone technology with special guests, Somali American poet and community organizer, Nimo H. Farah, and Algerian American filmmaker and investigative journalist Assia Boundaoui, director of The Feeling of Being Watched. This special episode is co-hosted by the Arab American National Museum, in conjunction with Andrea Assaf's month-long digital residency through the month of February. 

This event is part of a year-long series of Reflection Sessions held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Launched in September 2020 by Art2Action and the Carver Community Cultural Center, this series will continue through the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 later this year, in conjunction with our 2021 community-engaged theatre project "Eleven Reflections on the Nation: San Antonio." These online sessions are live, interactive, art-based, participatory events reflecting on our nation in the post-9/11 era. Each session is grounded in a performance excerpt from Eleven Reflections on September, by Andrea Assaf, with guest artists, creative prompts, and facilitated dialogue.
