The Basra-Boston Project
October 1, 2016 at 8:00 pm–10:00 pm
Exploring Common and Uncommon Experiences Through Art and Ideas
The Boston-Basra Project is making connections among scholars, artists, and students in the United States (principally in the Boston area) and at the University of Basra in Iraq in order to promote dialogue and share research and ideas about professional experiences and teaching techniques.
This free public event, including exhibits, presentations, play readings, and performances, emerges from dialogue among composers, visual artists, and archaeologists in Boston and Basra, joined by playwrights and poets. This is a collaboration with the Center for Arabic Culture, Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences at UMass Boston, University of Basra, and the Odysseus Project.
