Islam & the Performing Arts (UPDATED)

I had the pleasure of being part of the INTERSECTIONS team, 2013-2015. As two year program funded by the Building Bridges program at the Dorris Duke Charitable Foundation and hosted by the University of Houston’ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts it hosted renowned artists from the Islamic world. Thanks to Maya Zbib, Slavs and Tatars, eL Seed, and Ibrahim Quraishi for teaching us all about modern Islam and the performing arts at a time when our world desperately needs their knowledge, compassion and beauty. The program continues well into 2017 and has brought in more extraordinary artists from Ghana Think Tank and Dichtaphone Group!
