What does it mean to be an artist working in the Middle East today?

Amidst great turbulence and massive upheavals, the Middle East continues to generate great art, a tribute to the deep roots of Persian, Arabic and Jewish culture as well as the resilience of its artists. Join us for a discussion, punctuated by music from Aria Award-winning oud player, Joseph Tawadros, about making and creating art in the original cultural melting pot of the Middle East.

Joseph & James Tawadros, Hossein Valamanesh and Raihan Ismail. Discussion moderated by Andrew Ford.
