Resilience: Art and People of Afghanistan

Resilience: Art and People of Afghanistan

Join Harvard Art Museums for a celebration of Afghan culture, past and present, on Sunday, Mar. 3. The 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 everyone of the stories, people and art of Afghanistan. A moderated discussion with the speakers will follow the presentations. Free admission, but seating is limited and registration is required. Register by clicking on the event on this form. The lecture will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level, and doors to the hall will open for seating at 1:30pm.

The program will conclude with a performance by the Refugee Orchestra Project, led by Milad Yousufi. Conceived by conductor Lidiya Yankovskaya in 2016, the group was first organized to unite refugee musicians, raise awareness and raise funds for those fleeing the Syrian refugee crisis. The Refugee Orchestra Project attempts to demonstrate the vitally important role that refugees from across the globe have played in U.S. culture and society. Since its inception, the organization has grown to produce regular high-profile performances around the world.
