About the Event
Are you a Middle Eastern/North African (MENA) or Muslim American community member in Texas? Do you have a post-9/11 story to tell? You're invited to this *FREE* online workshop!
Award-winning Lebanese American poet, theatre director, and cultural organizer Andrea Assaf offers a creative workshop for MENA and Muslim community members in San Antonio (and everywhere, it's online!). This workshop offers an opportunity to share stories in community, explore your creativity, and learn how YOU could become a creative collaborator for Andrea's new project with The Carver Community Cultural Center. No previous arts experience necessary!
11Reflections: San Antonio is envisioned as a large-scale, city-specific, devised creation, scheduled to open at The Carver on November 20, 2021. It builds on, and will evolve from, Andrea Assaf's previous work, Eleven Reflections on September, a poetry and multi-media performance on Middle Eastern American experience in the post-9/11 era. But this time, San Antonio voices--your voices--will be at the center. This project is part Art2Action's new initiative, Eleven Reflections on the Nation, in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, and the wars that followed (supported, in part, by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, Building Bridges program). Join this workshop to learn more, and get to know lead artist Andrea Assaf. We want to connect with you!
