Date TBA

Workshop Link

From the jasmine tree-lined courtyards of Nizar Qabbani's Damascene homes to the flooded riverbanks of Langston Hughes' Harlem Renaissance poems, this unique performance-lecture is equal parts presentation / conversation. With a decade-long artistic journey that has both paralleled the rise of social media and borne witness to major sociopolitical shifts in Syria, Omar Offendum discusses how he's been able to develop a special blend of Hip-Hop and Arabic poetry to bridge cultural divides.
